At the occasion of la quinzaine numérique, Transcultures launched the spamm.be platform (in partnership with spamm.fr – Super Art Modern Museum), a web place dedicated for new art forms using the network as a creative material, accompanied by a critical corpus.
A first selection of introductory works (co-curation: systaime, digital artist, founder of spamm.fr )was proposed at the Maison du Peuple and the Maison des Cultures de Saint-Gilles. This didactic exhibition was framed by Jacques Urbanska (art-numeriques.info) with his matrix <iframes> (which allows, through a series of web “windows” to aggregate and present automatically Web content).

For this edition, Transcultures will focus its awards on the GIF and its animated images, (usually in a loop). Back to the earlier Web, the GIFs were very simple. In a late 2000s, a new generation of artists has emerged and promoted GIFs as a work of art in itself.
