transmediale and CTM's Vorspiel is a pre-festival programme where over 20 partner venues invite you to a series of exhibition openings, performances, artist talks and special events outside the main venues of either festival. Vorspiel will take place on the weekend prior to both festivals, from Thursday 26 – Sunday 29 January 2012, at independent organisations, galleries, project spaces and other venues across Berlin.
The Vilém Flusser residency programme aims to support conceptual projects and works that are towards a form of practice. The programme seeks to encourage new research approaches and further develop existing projects.
The reSource programme presents two art projects, especially created for this transmediale edition: R15N, an experimental phone service created by Dmytri Kleiner, Baruch Gottlieb and the Telekommunisten Network and Google – One Week Performance Piece by Johannes P Osterhoff.
