The Shift festival has once again had recourse to the

generous support of numerous institutions and individuals.

Our very heartfelt thanks are due to the Christoph Merian Foundation, to the Basel City and Basel-Landschaft Lottery Funds, the Swiss Federal Ministry of Culture, the Migros Culture Percentage, the GGG, the Ernst Goehner Foundation, the Pro Helvetia, the Alfred Richterich Foundation, the IWB, the supporters who wish to remain anonymous and the many others who afforded us moral, financial and practical support. A very special thank you is due also to Georg Christoph Tholen and his colleagues at the University of Basle’s Institute of Media Studies, with whom we organised this year’s conference; and also to the various Swiss universities of fine arts represented at the festival by student projects. Our heartfelt thanks are due also to the Dreispitz site administration for its good will and cooperation throughout preparations for the festival, to the many people who volunteered a helping hand and, naturally, to all the artists who make such a fantastic contribution.
