As one of the leading international festivals for art and digital
culture, transmediale presents and pursues the advancement of artistic
positions reflecting on the socio-cultural, political and economic
impact of new technologies. It seeks out artistic practices that not
only respond to scientific or technical developments, but that try to
shape the way in which we think about and experience the technologies
which impact virtually all aspects of our daily lives. As such,
transmediale understands media technologies as cultural techniques that
need to be embraced in order to comprehend, critique, and shape global
club transmediale (CTM) is a prominent international festival dedicated
to contemporary electronic, digital and experimental music, as well as
the diverse range of artistic activities in the context of sound and
club culture. CTM presents projects that experiment with new aesthetic
parameters and new forms of cooperation, develop possibilities for
informational and economic self-determination, and reflect on the role
of contemporary music against the backdrop of technological and social
transformations. Now more than ever, music emerges as a laboratory for
multiform experiments and as an active agent that allows for new
cultural techniques to be tested and proffered to the wider world. CTM
puts the focus on direct experience, risk-taking and personal
interaction, and thereby emphasises the situational potential of live
performance, the interplay of various media – sound and image, in
particular – and candid exchange between sub-cultural and academic
transmediale is a project of the Kulturprojekte Berlin in cooperation
with Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
transmediale is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
