Secrets Trilogy by Reynold Reynolds @tm11

The exhibition opened with the transmediale 2011 and runs until 3.4.2011. He told me that the exhibition space will function as a studio also where he is going to work on a new shooting series while the public can watch him and his team in progress. If you are in berlin by that time, you should not miss it. I had the pleasure to get Reynold Reynolds under the tagR.umbrella to talk about his work.

transmediale 2010 opened

The transmediale 2010 opened it’s doors yesterday, with a Yvette Matterns laser performance “From One to Many” and Charlemagne Palestine’s sound performance. The program looks promising and we already met a lot of great people – so we’re looking forward to a lot of interesting stuff! Here’s a little impression of the opening performance (the snow storm worked great with the laser show, but it made the microphone give up…):

Open Calls: Piksel Fest & transmediale10


The guys of Pikselfest in Norway are now accepting proposals in the categories installation, a/v performance, presentations and workshops. As ever – ” Projects realised using Max/Msp/Jitter, Flash/Shockwave, Final Cut or any other proprietary software does NOT qualify, and should not be submitted!”


Next years transmediale also published the call for entries.

I couldn’t find something like a theme or a subject – the next step after getting rid of the categories a few years ago? Would make sense imho, artistic production usually doesn’t care too much about festival themes anyway..


De:Bug is a German magazine for electronic music, with computers and there abilities… lets call this mag an electronic-live-style-survival-package (pff…out of breath) Couldn’t fit better, they just published the audio records of all “Club Transmediale” panels. And now you can find everything here.


Hermann Josef Hack: The whole world is a Climate Refugee Camp

With climate change we all become nomads.

Interview with Hermann Josef Hack. German version only.

Monday, January 26th 2009, the german artist Hermann Josef Hack arranged 200 small tents on the square in front of the Brandenburger Tor to build a miniature version of a refugee camp, the world climate refugee camp. Hack’s art refers to current political issues, for him there is no distinction between art and politics. Furthermore he wants to get in direct contact with the public audience instead of presenting his work in institutional art spaces like museums. That’s why he presents his work in public spaces and likes to watch the reaction of the pedestrians, “the very ones who caused the changes that made people refugees in the first place”.

this year transmediale was back in Haus der Kulturen der Welt which is a big and perfect location for such an event. Not only because again it was gathering people from allround the world related to the digital art bubble for communication, inspiration and conspiration.

and conspire. was even the theme of this years transmediale. but the fact that an artwork is incomprehensibly not necessarily means that it´s conspirativ – some works in the exhibtion were hard to /unpack – not only because of a missing text which might give you an idea. But i think it´s a strange human habbit anyway to try to comprehend everything. and if you need to satisfy your understanding of art reception – insert a coin.

documentation of the festival, like lectures and interviews can be found on transmediale archiv and here
