WINNER of the 300. Stuttgarter Filmwinter – Network culture award
Expanded Media award for Network Culture
In the category of “Network Culture” the award goes to the project: *“Megacorp.”* (2015) by the team KairUs (Linda Kronman and Andreas Zingerle) from Austria. “Megacorp” provides the public with valuable information on how the global phishing industry operates by appropriating and staging the common aesthetics and methodologies used by these phantom corporations. We also found specially interesting the efforts that the artists made on revealing the physical locations, indicated as legal registration addresses in some of this companies websites, which resulted to be fake. Overall we consider “Megacorp” to stage and give interesting insights on an important contemporary phenomenon which is worth paying attention to.
