The opening of Transmediale 2010, with all the peaches and opening concert, Tintinnabulations For Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Charlemagne Palestine.
Begin your festival with the special opening gala, which starts with a ceremony featuring a rare appearance by celebrated author and futurologist, Herbert W. Franke, plus addresses by Stephen Kovats and Hortensia Völckers. Following the ceremony, Charlemagne Palestine will announce the commencement of the festival by ringing the bells of the Tiergarton Carillon, and Yvette Mattern's latest Global Rainbow laser installation, From One to Many, will be switched on spectacularly illuminating the path between the House of World Cultures.
The transmediale.10 exhibition Future Obscura presents artworks that use the materials, mechanisms and machines of image-making to illuminate and define our relationship with atemporality - the collision of past, present and future. Over a dozen international artists, including Zilvinas Kempinas, Julius von Bismarck, Ken Rinaldo, Alice Miceli and Julien Maire, will create interdisciplinary explorations of light and chronology which will unfold across the HKW, and several urban spaces within Berlin.
