transmediale 2017 – ever elusive

Festival for Art and Digital Culture

transmediale will celebrate its 30th anniversary with an entire month of activities at Haus der Kulturen der Welt and other venues, starting 2 February until 5 March 2017. Their ever elusive theme refers both to the elusiveness of media cultures in constant transition and to transmediale itself, as a project that is constantly shifting ground. In searching for where agency and power lie in today’s media systems, transmediale’s 30th edition offers a nuanced outlook on the nonhuman and its role as an influential motor of change. 

A dense programme of conferences, screenings, workshops and performances – some of which presented in collaboration with CTM – invite visitors for critical debate and exchange.

Starting 20 January, Vorspiel 2017 is a joint effort by transmediale and CTM to create and strengthen the network and scene of cultural actors and institutions in Berlin. More than 30 project spaces, galleries and institutions that engage with digital art & culture and experimental sounds & music create a distributed programme of exhibitions, performances, concerts, presentations and other formats.

See the ticket section for transmediale and CTM connect passes, that give access to both festivals.
