The central exhibition of afterglow is in line with this year’s overall programme strategy to only exhibit new or commissioned works. In a curatorial and organisational collaboration between transmediale and LEAP (Lab for Electronic Arts and Performance), the festival has invited Art Hack Day as a grassroots event/exhibit format/community for artists whose medium is tech and hackers whose medium is art.
Tom Palazzolo, represented in the screening program with the film Ricky and Rocky, has created for the transmediale afterglow a cinematic statement of his outtakes from 1968 and from current material, which can be seen online here.
Note: Tickets for this event are sold out online. A limited amount can still be purchased at the box office at HKW from 18:00 onwards. | In a special celebration this year, transmediale and CTM jointly bring their 2014 editions to a close with Robert Henke, known for his peerless Monolake productions.
The Internet Yami-Ichi (Black Market*) is a flea market which deals with "Internet-ish" things, face-to-face, in actual space. Both flea markets and the Internet are fanatical and chaotic mixes of the amazing and useless.
transmediale is a Berlin-based festival and year-round project that draws out new connections between art, culture and technology. The activities of transmediale aim at fostering a critical understanding of contemporary culture and politics as saturated by media technologies. In the course of its 27 year history, the annual transmediale festival has turned into an essential event in the calendar of media art professionals, artists, activists and students from all over the world. The broad cultural appeal of the festival is recognised by the German federal government who supports the transmediale through its programme for beacons of contemporary culture.
Our Early Bird Tickets are now sold out! From now on, tickets to the regular prices are available. You have the possibility to purchase festival passes with access either to transmediale 2014, CTM.14 or to both festivals with our special Kombi Passes.
Call of Duty is one of the most successful first-person shooters in computer gaming history. In the Black Ops instalment from 2010, the action takes place in Nuketown, a city in the American desert where the effects of atomic bombs were tested on people, cars and houses. The ‘residents’ of Nuketown are mannequins.
