The transmediale.10 Salon consists of three interdisciplinary strands - talks, projects and workshops - exploring FUTURITY NOW!. With a specific focus on free culture and process-based projects, the Salon will engage cultural thinkers and makers into conversations and actions that lay down future strategies for a global network age.
In K1 at the HKW, transmediale.10 will continue the festival's tradition of strategic discourse with a curated set of Salon Talks focusing on the vocabulary and methodologies in digital art, politics and society questioning current takes on the concept of future. This year, process-led Salon Projects will transform the HKW foyer into a 'Futures Exchange'. Open activities, consultation sessions and project demonstrations will be running all-day, every day, throughout the festival. transmediale.10's Salon Workshops feature opportunities for hacktivists and retoolers, makers and doers, to get their hands dirty with a series of artist-led sessions that aim to visualise, capture and experiment with the essence of FUTURITY NOW!
Running across the entire salon programme is the Free Culture Incubator, a set of interlinked and participatory sessions led by Ela Kagel. In the public eye, the project will bring together stakeholders from the arts, science and business sectors and work on a business model for a cultural enterprise of the future.
