"A finished work is exactly that, it requires resurrection." – (John Cage, 1949)

The transmediaie.07 conference, "unfinish!", deals with the phenomenon of finiteness in art, science, architecture, computer science and politics. The digital culture of the present seems to be neither willing nor able to accept final determination and the closure of processes. Instead processuality and continuous and consecutive updates and versions are the credo of current cultural practices. The conference of transmediale.07 enters into the discrepancy between the desire to open up solidified structures and situations, and the curse of digital work that doesn't come to conclusions, but only to an iteration of preliminary versions. In this discussion terms such as "opening", "closure", and "restart", figure as central aspects. In six panel discussions and in three keynote speeches, they will be analysed and applied to artistic and socio-political questions.
