Making a life not just a living
Viktorija Šiaulytė

We regret to mark the all too early passing of Sascha Pohflepp. An artist and thinker who participated in transmediale several times, Sascha was always a powerhouse of ideas and creative energy with, as many have noted, a seemingly magical capacity to be everywhere at once. We will all miss you, Sascha.

Would you like to be part of the upcoming transmediale edition? For the preparations of transmediale 2020 we are looking for an event coordinator, a communication assistance, and a program assistance. 

Our long-time partner festival CTM has announced their 2020 festival under the title LIMINAL. The 21st edition will take place from 24 January to 2 February 2020 at various Berlin venues such as Berghain, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Radialsystem V, and Kunstquartier Bethanien.

Join us for the Unite & Shine March on 19 May! As one of 2000 other art and culture institutions who have signed the Declaration of the Many we support their efforts toward a Europe of the Many, solidarity instead of privilege and free art.

Uneasy Alliances

The second issue of the transmediale/journal aims to investigate how new forms of acting in solidarity can be built by connecting artistic, tech, and activist approaches.

We are excited to announce Dr. Nora O Murchú as the new artistic director of transmediale. Commencing the role from the 2021 edition, O Murchú will be the festival’s fifth artistic director and the first woman to take this position in its 33-year history.
