transmediale is looking for an Artistic Director to succeed Kristoffer Gansing, who will leave transmediale after the 2020 festival edition.

Together with our partner festival CTM, we are searching for independent project spaces, platforms, curators, and artists in Berlin to create a joint pre-festival program.

Inspired by transmediale’s 2019 festival theme, the next PhD/research workshop focuses specifically on machine learning and the ability of technologies to capture and structure ever-changing feelings and experiences.

The term "Acid Communism" was coined by author and cultural theorist Mark Fisher as part of his attempts to envision a Left capable of breaking the "no alternative" ideology of Capitalist Realism by unleashing post-capitalist desires. Fisher was writing a book titled Acid Communism before his sudden death in 2017. With the aim of exploring Fisher's concept further and embed it into their practice, the group Plan C, of which he was also a member, designed a thematically related workshop. Building Acid Communism was hosted at transmediale 2018 and involved consciousness-raising techniques and group discussions: How can we talk about collective experiences based on collective action and joy today? How can we turn anew to a politics of care? In this article, Plan C members Nadia Idle and Keir Milburn discuss the background, aims and outcomes of the workshop.

With the upcoming edition of transmediale, we provide a new platform for universities to expand and deepen the festival visit of their student groups.

transmediale 2019 focuses on how feelings are made into objects of technological design and asks what role emotions and empathy play within digital culture. One of the key questions of the upcoming festival is “What moves you?”, referring not only to an emotional response but also to the infrastructures and aesthetics that govern how affect becomes mobilized as a political force today.

How can we think about acts of recovery, re-publishing and making documents accessible as artistic gestures? What happens when documents that have already been published are made public again? For Hate Library, an installation presented at transmediale 2018, Nick Thurston took publicly available social media and web forum discussions between members of far-right groups from around Europe and transferred them in to a public space of exhibition. With reference to Harun Farocki's political film tradition, Lisa Gitelman's sociology of documents, Eyal Weizman's forensic aesthetic, methods of file sharing and leaking, and his own practice, Thurston examines how documents can become matters of public concern through their "social life"—through re-publishing, sharing, and discussing them.
