Transmediale Berlin
10.00 - 17.00 Haus der Kulturen der Welt

Art is changing and you cannot see this more clearly than at Berlin’s media art and digital cultural festival Transmediale this January. A veritable feast of live performances, film and video, exhibitions and more, the festival aims to bring art right up to date and right into the face of the public.

This year the theme will be “afterglow”. The “afterglow” theme relates to the idea that we are bathing in the afterglow moment of the digital age. The first flush has dissipated and digital and social media are now an integral part of our everyday lives.

So what actually can you experience at Transmediale? While there are too many events to list here we feel the highlights will be:

Art Hack Day

For two days before the start of Transmediale a multi-cultural and heavily talented group of artists will be collaborating on an art-hackathon. The idea is to build from scratch a unique exhibition with the theme of “afterglow” in the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, which is the main venue. The artists will be aiming to move away from standardised ideas of curated exhibitions and show the work in a more instantaneous way.

Lucky Dragons

This duo are a must see for fans of experimental music. Based in Los Angeles, the pair consists of Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck who take everyday sounds, twist them around, add a big pinch of improvisation and come out the other end with something inspiring.

Luther Price

In the film section greats like Louis Henderson (Lettres du Voyant) and Elizabeth Vander Zaag (Digit series) will be showing their work, but the highlight is likely to be Luther Price. Price often splices together little bits of footage that he has found, and you will probably feel it is a little confrontational in its content. So get out of your film comfort zone and try something different.
