ARTE Creative at transmediale: World Brain
In addition to the film and video programme transmediale presents in collaboration with ARTE Creative the world premiere of the essayistic transmedia project World Brain by French artists Gwenola Wagon and Stéphane Degoutin. The 70-minute film as well as the interactive website takes the visitors on a dive through the physical shoals of the internet. World Brain explores the utopian dreams and ideologies connected to the development of collective intelligence and the idea of a worldwide network. World Brain follows the wanderings of a group of researchers who try to survive in the forest using Wikipedia, aiming at nothing less than the creation of an alternative project securing the survival of manhood.
