Between shiny high-tech, e-waste dumps, big data businesses and mass surveillance schemes:
Under the title afterglow, the 27th edition of transmediale will explore our present post-digital moment as one in which former treasures of our mediatised life are turning into trash.
International researchers, artists and activists will explore the ambivalent condition of current digital culture, looking towards a future in which media technologies have become part of daily life, turning into physical and immaterial waste.
transmediale 2014 adopts the afterglow of the digital revolution as a starting point to deal with some of the burning issues of today and to invent new speculative practices.
