transmediale.09

27 January – 1 February 2009
House of World Cultures, Berlin

transmediale is one of the leading festivals for art and digital culture internationally. On a yearly basis it presents advanced artistic positions reflecting on the socio-cultural impact of new technologies. Its program includes a conference, an exhibition, live performances, film and video programs and a variety of fringe events throughout Berlin.

With the festival theme DEEP NORTH transmediale.09 focusses on the global artistic, cultural, societal and philosophical consequences that the presumed imminent collapse of the polar ice barrier may trigger. Are we about to reach another historically succinct moment of no return leaving in its wake uncontrollable global transformations? Does climate change elicit cultural change, a shifting of extremes or a collapse in established, systemic and network norms?
