(festival) transmediale/conversationpiece 03-07.02.2016

transmediale reboots itself with a new performative and participatory
format for its 29th edition. With the name Conversation Piece, the
event creates an intensive space of exchanges, murmurs, and
transitions, with dialogues initiated before the event and continued
afterwards. Rather than a monothematic festival with static exhibition
and program structures, artistic and research practice will unfold
live through discussions, lectures, workshops, temporary
installations, and various experimental hybrid formats. On our updated
website, you can now find the first program details and an overview of
our curatorial team.

transmediale is a Berlin-based festival and year-round project that
draws out new connections between art, culture and technology. All
activities of transmediale aim at fostering a critical understanding
of contemporary culture and politics as saturated by media
technologies. In the course of its 29 year history, the annual
transmediale festival has turned into an essential event in the
calendar of media art professionals, artists, activists and students
from all over the world. Since 2011, transmediale also has an all-year
ongoing activity, including a residency programme. These activities
provide a sustainable structure of feedback, research and reflection
that interacts with the yearly festival.
