Dear all,

we hope to see many of you at transmediale!
Some snapshots of the programme are listed below.

All the best, Tatiana

---------- transmediale 2014 afterglow -------------

The revolution is over. Welcome to the afterglow.

The digital revolution was a dinner party but its afterglow is not. The
once utopian promises of high-definition audiovisuals, real-time
electronic communication and infinite storage possibilities are just
some of the digital culture perspectives that are now widely
disseminated. At the same time as these phenomena are still shrouded in
the glossy aesthetics of the digital, their tarnished appeal cannot be
denied in a world where 'big data' is also the 'big brother' of mass
surveillance and where the 'cloud' is made of the metals and minerals of
the 'earth' on which data centers are built. Far from immaterial and
neutral, our post-digital culture is one where tech is deeply embedded
in the geophysical and geopolitical. This is evident at the significant
'other sites' of digital culture such as e-waste dumps, mines,
mass-digitisation companies and security agencies.

transmediale 2014 proposes the post-digital moment of 'afterglow' as a
diagnosis of the current status of the digital hovering between 'trash
and treasure'. afterglow conjures up the ambivalent state of digital
culture, where what seems to remain from the digital revolution is a
paradoxical nostalgia for the futuristic high-tech it once promised us
but that is now crumbling in our hands. The challenge that this moment
poses is how to use that state of post-digital culture between trash and
treasure as a still not overdetermined space from which to invent new
speculative thought and practice. Are there means of renewal in the
excess, overflow and waste products of the digital afterglow?

SNAPSHOTS OF THE PROGRAMME

#################
Exhibition Programme
#################
This year's exhibition programme comes together through a hackathon
inspired methodology where the works are developed on site during the
festival: In collaboration with Berlin-based Lab For Electronic Arts And
Performance (LEAP) and Art Hack Day/Olof Mathé, transmediale presents
the second part of Art Hack Day Berlin. Following the first edition at
LEAP, Going Dark, roughly 70 artists and hackers will create an instant
exhibition within 48 hours according to the afterglow theme. In
addition, artist talks, workshops and performances will take place in
the framework of the resulting exhibition.

Among the participants:
Brenna Murphy, Birch Cooper, Kim Asendorf, Phillip Ronnenberg, Julien
Oliver, Rachel de Joode, Dani Ploeger, Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Exonemo,
Geraldine Juárez, Niko Princen, Nancy Mauro-Flude, Katerina Undo

Connected to Art Hack Day is Yami-Ichi an Internet Black Market
organised by the century-old Japanese secret society of the Internet,
IDPW. After several successful editions in its home country, this market
which trades in banned curiosities from the backstreets of the Internet
is making its European premiere with thirty vendors from Japan and Berlin.

###################
Conference programme
###################
The conference of this year's transmediale, curated by Tatiana
Bazzichelli and Kristoffer Gansing in collaboration with Ryan Bishop,
Jussi Parikka, Francesco Warbear Macarone Palmieri und Katrien Jacobs,
takes afterglow as a metaphor for the present condition of digital
culture, examining the geopolitical, infrastructural and bodily
consequences of the excessive digitalisation that has taken place over
the course of the last three decades. Central motifs are mass
surveillance, excessive big data schemes, whistleblowing, the corrupt
ecology of technological resources and the effects of digitalisation on
identity and sexuality.
Japanese artist Sputniko! will thematise technology's impact on everyday
life in a performative keynote, the panel The Chinese Dream: The
Doctrine and the Sexy will feature a discussion about attitudes towards
patriotism, surveillance culture and body politics in the Chinese sphere
with Sufeng Song and recorded interventions by Ai Weiwei and Ai Xiaoming.
Independent security analyst Jacob Appelbaum and documentary film
director Laura Poitras reflect with artist and geographer Trevor Paglen
on upcoming frontiers of action and awareness for hackers, activists and
artists in the present context of geopolitical surveillance and control.
Sean Cubitt and Denisa Kera will talk about the effects of electronic
and synthetic waste on geological and biological bodies, Bill Binney,
Jeremy Scahill and Annie Machon deal with the question how the ethics of
cypherpunk, whistle-blowing and investigative journalism are evolving
into a hybrid form of civic resistance.
The conference programme is supported by the Federal Agency for Civic
Education and one of its streams is presented in collaboration with the
Winchester School of Art.

Among the participant are:
Sputniko!, Laura Poitras, Trevor Paglen, Jacob Appelbaum, Jeremy
Scahill, Benjamin H. Bratton, Metahaven, James Bridle, Sean Cubitt, Olia
Lialina, William Binney, Donatella Della Ratta, Ebru Yetiskin, Miriyam
Auoragh, Fabiane Borges, Salvatore Iaconesi, Geraldine Juarez, Denisa
Kera, Khan, Annie Machon, Shaka McGlotten, Sufeng Song, recorded
interventions by Ai Weiwei and Ai Xiaoming

###################
Performance Programme
###################
transmediale 2014 afterglow's performance programme focuses on
audiovisual and inter-media pieces where technology is not the main
focus, but rather the often intangible space between humans, objects,
and systems.

Nurturing a longstanding partnership with CTM -- Festival for
Adventurous Music and Art, together the two festivals constitute the
world's largest annual platform for reflection on the cultural
significance of new technologies and digital culture.

In a special celebration this year, transmediale and CTM jointly bring
their 2014 editions to a close with Robert Henke, known for his peerless
Monolake productions. Henke will perform the German premiere of his
stunning new sound and laser show, Lumière, an exploration of the
synchronicity and divergence of light and darkness and of slow movements
and sudden bursts of motion and noise. The work elevates Henke's
expertise as he commands three powerful lasers to draw repeating shapes,
ephemeral objects, and ultra short pulses of light in an improvised
dialogue where shapes create sonic events and vice versa.

Another German premiere presented together with CTM will be British
artist Dinos Chapman, one half of the enfants terribles of British
contemporary art, The Chapman Brothers, who will perform an audiovisual
live show based on his acclaimed 2013 electronic music album Luftbobler.
Chapman projects his short films on a triple-screen, marrying sound and
visuals in an eerie, immersive and unforgettable experience. With
insomnia cited as a source of its creation, the album and performance
are a result of a decade of sonic and visual experimentation that was
literally made in the afterglow.

American artists MSHR show their audiovisual performance Ceremonial
Chamber, Nigerian multi media artist Jelili Atiku together with Dani
Ploeger makes use of e-waste materials from Nigeria to enace the
socio-economic conditions of Nigeria. Nancy Mauro-Flude presents her
performance Error in Time and Geraldine Juárez Hello Bitcoin.

Among the participant highlights are: Robert Henke aka Monolake (in
cooperation with CTM- Festival for Adventurous Music and Art), Dinos
Chapman (in cooperation with CTM - Festival for Adventurous Music and
Art), MSHR, Lucky Dragons (in Zusammenarbeit mit CTM - Festival for
Adventurous Music and Art), Jelili Atiku, Nancy Mauro-Flude, Dani
Ploeger, Geraldine Juárez
