Welcome to the page of the transmediale/magazine!


transmediale/magazine is a new format of transmediale, a magazine on art and digital culture which marks the continued presence of transmediale in the city and internationally beyond the festival itself. It contains actual information about art and digital culture, and will be appreciated by the international scene of arts and culture. Three issues are envisioned per year. It will take the discourses and thematic we start annually at the festival, and bring them into discussions throughout the whole year.
