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 30 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 program. These activities provide a sustainable structure of feedback, research, and reflection that interacts with the annual festival.
