conference

What does it mean to speak about digital culture today, and what are the implications of the term post-digital? The conference takes afterglow as a metaphor for the present condition of digital culture, examining the geopolitical, infrastructural and bodily consequences of the excessive digitisation that has taken place over the course of the last three decades.

transmediale is involving you in this post orgasmic moment as a different and new reading of bodies and sexuality in a post-digital momentum. TRASHURE, as the hybrid name informs sliding between trashes and treasures, explores trans-cultural geographies of sexualities.

Whistleblowers, hackers, artists and activists get into dialogue to reflect on the art of disclosure, as a strategy of awareness and a modality to expose hidden bugs in the socio-political systems. Can we imagine a sustainable way to act in the digital info-sphere? Is it still possible to claim: “Information wants to be free”?

This stream offers insights into waste and mines, data and hardware—the long tails of unintended consequences—in a way that entangles issues of labour, geopolitics, economics, media and the Earth into a weird planetary constellation.
