transmediale engages in reflective, aesthetic and speculative positions in between art, technology and culture. An annual festival and numerous cooperation projects articulate the relationship between technology and culture in non-linear, dynamic ways. transmediale expresses a critical understanding of technology as being more than the digital as well as of the cultural being more than what is going on within institutionalised fields of production. Accordingly, transmediale is a transdisciplinary platform, always searching for new avenues of artistic, academic, activist and everyday expressions. It is a project always on the look out for projects and persons who may help in navigating, reflect on and ultimately re-model the production of contemporary culture.
Within the scope of its annual festival, transmediale includes exhibitions, conferences, film and video programmes, live performances and publications. It also participates in and supports long- and short-term collaboration projects unfolding throughout the year. Moreover it cooperates with club transmediale (CTM), which deals with electronic music and club culture.
