(in), Zhou Hongxiang (cn), Istvan Kantor (ca), Thomas Koener (de),
Agnes Meyer-Brandis (de), Netochka Nezvanova (us), Adrian Ward (uk),

As a festival for art and digital culture, transmediale presents
advanced artistic positions reflecting on the socio-cultural impact of
new technologies. It seeks out artistic practices that not only respond
to scientific or technical developments, but that try to shape the way
in which we think about and experience these technologies. transmediale
understands media technologies as cultural techniques which need to be
embraced in order to comprehend, critique, and shape our contemporary
Digital media are increasingly used by artists of all disciplines to
express their ideas and to explore new aesthetic territories and the
relation between art and technology. What is important for
transmediale, though, is that the artistic practices do not only make
use of technologies, but that they imply a reflection about the
aesthetic, cultural and social dimensions of such technological
developments. transmediale and its competition promote an understanding
of media art as a sounding board and catalyst for a critical and
creative expansion of the potential of human agency through new
We invite the submission of works and projects that respond to this
challenge. We are interested in works that expand our understanding of
digital image and sound aesthetics, of narrative, of interactivity and,
in particular, the cultural significance of software and computer
programming as cultural techniques. However, we are also curious to see
the submission of works outside of these areas, works that expand our
notions of artistic practice, and works which can makea strong argument
for the crucial role that new technologies play in our perception and
projection of a contemporary global culture.
Together with the jury, we explicitly welcome submissions from artists
who live and work outside of Western Europe and North America.
transmediale is hosted by Berliner Kulturveranstaltungs-GmbH in

club transmediale (CTM) - festival for adventurous music and related
visual arts - takes place in conjunction with the transmediale. CTM is
an independent platform for new forms of electronic and experimental
music and for the various artistic activity drawing influences from and
refering to sound- and club culture. It presents outstanding
productions in digital, electronic and experimental music, audio-visual
performance and installation.
CTM reflects on the role of contemporary music culture as a changing
agent for present society and - due to the massive dissemination of
music - as one of the key elements to shape the transformation
processes that characterise todays mediasphere. With a focus on the
exploration of performative concepts, informal networks and the
interaction between different media formats - especially of image and
sound - CTM emphasises the situative potential of live music and
performance. Thus it encourages the crossover of institutional,
academic and subcultural contexts.
club transmediale invites the submission of works and projects in the
fields of digital, electronic and experimental music, audiovisual
performance, sound art, installation, video-performance/VJing, music
video and of design concepts aimed to shape social situations and
communication processes related to music culture.
