Mexico has attracted the attention and imagination of generations of Europeans, among them such famous artists as Luis Buñuel, Sergei Eisenstein and Antonin Artaud. At the same time, Europe has long been an important point of departure for cultural developments in art and design, inspiring great Mexicans like Diego Rivera.
The European Media Art Network (EMAN) is a network of European media art laboratories. EMAN offers possibilities to research, produce, present and distribute media art in Europe and is the continuation of the European Media Artists in Residence Exchange Programme (EMARE) which has been initiated by Werkleitz in 1995. Over the past 18 years more than 150 artists have been commissioned through EMAN/EMARE.
