salon tm.09 - The Digital Greenhouse

The Digital Greenhouse is the transmediale.09 salon for strategic artistic, performative and net-based discourse. Bringing together artists, cultural activists, hackers and a cosmopolitan array of thinkers and makers, the salon seeks to address the cultural 'raison d'etre' beyond the daily headlines of climate change rhetoric. How does digital art and culture maneuver across political and societal boundaries between 'our' North and an emergent, less 'silent' and deep South to create new voices and strong cultural networks? With the irreversible global transformations we face, the Digital Greenhouse becomes a training camp for the cultural revolution essential in creating new tools and methods of agency and dialogue.
