  • Festival Description:

    transmediale was founded in 1988 as VideoFilmFest, a side-project of the Berlin Berlinale’s 'International Forum of New Cinema'. The co-founder and artistic director Micky Kwella intended to offer a platform to electronic media productions not accepted at traditional film festivals such as the Berlinale. In 2006, the subtitle of the festival changed from 'international media art festival' to 'festival for art and digital culture', opening up the festival to not just pure media art but also to projects where art, technology and the digital age meet the everyday. In order to reflect on the growing number of theoretical and critical works submitted for the competition, the transmediale Award was extended to include the Vilém Flusser Theory Award. In 2008, the transmediale parcours was launched in order to reflect upon research, as well as artistic and critical backgrounds behind each festival’s theme.

    transmediale 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 these technologies. It understands media technologies as cultural techniques which need to be embraced in order to comprehend, critique, and shape our contemporary society. Experimental, Art and New Media productions of all lengths are accepted. The transmediale festival's program consists of film and video screenings and competition, conferences and panels to facilitate discourse among industry professionals, trend makers and audience members, and a contemporary media art exhibition. Moreover it cooperates with club transmediale (CTM), which deals with electronic music and club culture.

  • Tonight the Transmediale Awards 2008 were announced at the House of World Cultures in Berlin. The international jury awarded three works: Julia Meltzer and David Thorne from the USA receive the first prize (endowed with 4,000 euros). Their video "Not a Matter of If but When" (2006) shows the young Syrian performer Remi Farah recounting conditions of uncertainty and chaos.

    The second prize (2,500 euros) goes to UBERMORGEN.COM from Austria with Paolo Cirio and
    Alessandro Ludovico from Italy for their joint web project "Amazon Noir - The Big Book Crime" (2006). A third prize (1.500 euros) is awarded to Gordan Savicic from Vienna for his per- formative intervention ‚Constraint City: The Pain of Everyday Life’ (2007). Further works received an honorary mention: Francis Hunger ("The Setun Conspiracy") and Christoph Wachter with Mathias Jud (picidae.net).

    The transmediale Vilem Flusser Theory Award is awarded for the first time in order to reflect the growing number of theoretical and critical practice works submitted for the competition.

    The winner in 2008 is Simon Yuill from Great Britain with ‘All problems of notation will be solved by the masses: Free Open Form Performance, Free/Libre Open Source Software, and Distributive Practice’ (2008). He receives 1,000 euros. 500 euros each go to the Special Mentions: Bureau d'Etudes (‚End of Secrecy’) and Naeem Mohaiemen ("Fear of a Muslim Planet: Hip-Hop’s Hidden History").

    The prize money for both, the transmediale Award 2008 and the Transmediale Vilem Flusser Theory Award is donated by Gravis GmbH Berlin. 1,117 entries from 57 countries were submitted for this year’s competition. The jury was composed of Olga Goriunova (Moscow),
    Nat Muller (Rotterdam), Wonil Rhee (Seoul), Mihaela Vasile (Bucharest) and Florian Wust (Berlin).
