archive history

transmediale is currently working on the selection and categorization of various types of archived content that will be regularly uploaded in the following months. The developing history section of transmediale/archive provides a structure to explore past festival editions by selecting different years and projects on the right.


transmediale was founded as VideoFilmFest in 1988. In the course of its 30 year history, the festival shifted its focus from video to multimedia-based art forms and evolved into an international platform for digital art and culture. In gathering works, program brochures, publications, and documentation material of each festival edition, the transmediale/archive depicts a substantial portion of the history of media and digital art and contributes to the archiving of experimental media culture in Berlin and internationally.
