About transmediale

transmediale is a project by Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH in collaboration with Haus der Kulturen der Welt. It is funded as a cultural institution of excellence by Kulturstiftung des Bundes [German Federal Cultural Foundation].

transmediale is an annual festival for media art and digital culture taking place for one week in February in Berlin, Germany. The festival engages in reflective, aesthetic and speculative positions in between art, technology and culture. It seeks to express a critical understanding of technology as being more than the digital world as well as of the cultural as being more than what emerges from within institutionalised fields of production. Accordingly, transmediale is a transdisciplinary platform, always searching for new avenues of artistic, academic, activist and everyday expressions. It is a project always on the look out for projects and persons who may help to navigate, reflect on and ultimately re-model the production of contemporary culture.

Within the scope of its annual festival, transmediale includes exhibitions, conferences, film and video programmes, live performances and publications. It also contributes to long- and short-term collaboration projects unfolding throughout the year. Moreover, club transmediale (since 2011 called CTM) takes place in parallel and in cooperation dedicated to contemporary electronic, digital and experimental music. The 29th edition of transmediale takes place from 2 to 7 February 2016 at House of World Cultures in Berlin.
