Corona: No animago for now
Digital Production have halted planning and preparations for animago. The incalculability of further corona developments makes it impossible to plan an event for now that is both safe and meaningful for everyone.
Unfortunately there will be no animago any time soon. This is announced by us as organisers of the event. The reason is the incalculability of the further development of the Corona pandemic and the associated conditions for the realisation of events.
In the past few weeks and month we have been thinking intensively about how we can shape the animago with its components Award, Conference and Exhibition into a reasonable concept that both guarantees the necessary safety and makes sense for everyone involved.
Despite all considerations we unfortunately came to the unfortunate conclusion again and again: Without compromising on scope, content or the network platform , no animago can be held. But “half an animago”, an animago light, is not an real animago – and it is certainly not an event that meets the demands of the artists and us.
(Stephan Steininger, Managing Director)
The team from Digital Production will use the time gained to further develop the event with the involvement of their long-standing partners Günter Hagedorn (jury/competition) and Thomas Gronert (conference). Entries already submitted will of course remain in the competition.
