The transmediale parcours makes its debut as a 'pilot' publication with CONSPIRE.
transmediale parcours has been launched to reflect upon the research as well as artistic and critical background behind the particular year's theme. As a parcours the edition is meant to sketch a conceptually meandering path through the festival's various segments and as such exists as a stand alone publication with its own character, content and style.
transmediale parcours 1:
The speculative mechanisms of conspiracy theories have fueled global events long before ARPANET, the Internet’s clandestine military-academic predecessor. Succumbing to our yearnings for mystery, desire and unpredictability, conspiracy is a human condition crossing all cultural and epochal boundaries. This first transmediale parcours threads a series of text contributions, found documents, and original art works together, tracing a contemporary conspiratorial discourse through art and digital culture.
