transmediale was founded in 1988 as VideoFilmFest, a side-project of the Berlin Berlinale’s 'International Forum of New Cinema'. The co-founder and artistic director Micky Kwella intended to offer a platform to electronic media productions not accepted at traditional film festivals such as the Berlinale.
Within the following 20 years, the festival steadily evolved. In 1997/98 it changed its name from 'VideoFest' to 'transmediale' in order to reflect upon the festival’s expanding programme which now embraced a wide spectrum of multimedia-based art forms. In 1999 club transmediale was founded. Focusing primarily on electronic music and club culture, it is organised by a curatorially and financially independent team.
For the opening event of the 25th anniversary edition of transmediale, we present a compelling and compressed taster of what will be on offer during the festival. | 31 January 2012, HKW opens 17:00, Opening Ceremony: 18:30, afterwards DJ Set till 23:00
