Transmediale is a festival that aims to challenge people to explore and rethink their everyday relationship to technology and encourage the critical understanding of art, culture and politics in a society shaped by the media.

Exhibition Programme

The festival programme includes a thematic exhibition that displays different types of art, but also film and video screenings, performances, a number of workshops and a conference programme. While the video category covers a wide range of short films, retrospectives and documentaries, the performance category focuses on forms of expression that combine art installation, sound, performance and video live on stage.

Symposiums and Panels

The conferences and workshops depart from the festival theme and explore the critical dimension of networking, hacktivism, media theory and the politics of technological development. Keynote speakers and conference panelists include academics, artists and critics well-known in their respective fields. The workshops provide participants with the opportunity to explore different concepts in both practical and discussion-based ways.

Transmediale Projects Throughout the Year

The Transmediale is also involved in different sorts of projects. One of them is the CTM Festival (formerly club transmediale), a festival for contemporary electronic music that takes place at the same time as the transmediale.
