transmediale Study Circles 2019

Learn more about the Study Circles that lead up to the forthcoming festival and the 2019 transmediale/CTM performance by Actress + Young Paint.

In keeping with 2019’s focus on cultural emergence and knowledge exchange, we introduce the transmediale Study Circles, which frame the upcoming edition and are part of the core program of the festival days. In response to the festival theme, they bring together artists, researchers, and activists in working groups happening before, during, and after transmediale 2019 in order to extend and deepen the process of knowledge production by involving participants at an early stage. In close cooperation with the Berlin-based project spaces TIER.space, Spektrum, and Import Projects and following on from a recent kick-off working session, the Study Circles will unfold through further meetings and events in November and December, sessions and events as part of the festival program, and an accompanying in-depth documentation in the transmediale/journal online.

Study Circle Participants: Jennifer Bennett, Marija Bozinovska Jones, Lou Cornum, Marta Dauliūtė & Viktorija Šiaulytė, Maya Indira Ganesh, Carolina García Cataño, Tung-Hui Hu, Wojciech Kosma, Ewa Majewska, Fernanda Monteiro & Nadège, Pedro Oliveira, Patricia Reed, Femke Snelting, Robin Vanbesien

The cooperation between transmediale and TIER.space, Spektrum, and Import Projects is supported by Senate Department for Culture and Europe.

In collaboration with CTM, we present the world premiere of the most recent cooperation between Actress and Young Paint as part of our 2019 festival editions. The AI-based character Young Paint has been progressively learning and emulating the shadowy, unpredictable, UK bass- and rave-inspired music of Darren J. Cunningham aka Actress. Over the course of 2018, the AI alter ego has spent time programming and arranging Cunningham’s sonic palette, learning not only how to react to his work, but also to take the lead with the occasional solo. A life-size projection of Young Paint working in a virtual studio parallels Cunningham’s performance on stage, visualizing their collaboration. The two-night transmediale/CTM concert marks the first time that Young Paint will perform live with Actress on stage. Please note that the performance is included in the the CTM Gold Pass and the transmediale + CTM Connect Gold Pass.
