outResourcing explores the pervasive phenomenon of labor outsourcing from a critical constructive point of view. Outsourcing is often either simply embraced as an economical necessity of the global economy or criticized as such on the basis of the uneven distribution of wealth, power and/or labor that it entails. This project will take the phenomenon of outsourcing and approach it as a site for the production of new hybrid subjectivities and economies.

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.
