The transmediale 2k+12 identity was designed by Manuel Bürger, Timm Häneke and Till Wiedeck. The design was inspired by the in/compatible theme with the working title Promised Land, primarily reflecting the high expectations of everyday digital technologies. The festival architecture of transmediale 2012 in the foyer of Haus der Kulturen der Welt was conceptualized by raumlaborberlin. The architectural installation comprises elements which, as an ensemble, are reminiscent of domestic living situations.
