** transmediale 2023
a model, a map, a fiction

** 1–5 February 2023
Akademie der Künste, Berlin
and across the city

** It’s time to come together – Join us for the 36th edition of 
transmediale festival, a four-day programme at Akademie der Künste and 
an expanded exhibition programme across the city

** Four-Day Festival Programme
The four-day festival programme will transform the Akademie into a space 
of conversation, workshops, exhibitions, performances, and film, scaling 
itself across the venue. Merging theoretical discourse and artistic 
interventions with craic 
(https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Craic) , the festival 
will explore how technological scale creates relations and fractures in 
the world by transferring images through history and across 
socio-political contexts.

** a model, a map, a fiction
We are drowning in images and the multiplying realities they create. 
Models, maps, and fictions about the world are rendered to handheld 
screens as meaning is scaled and distributed across data servers, 
network cables, render farms, 3D assets, and automated algorithms. 
Calculation and its many biases make the world computable, yet it pushes 
and pulls our affections and politics through infrastructures and 
logistics, flattening us into tokenized transactions along the way.
Climate collapse, looping.
Grainy, blurred images make truths.
Facts, indistinguishable from fictions.
Molecular geopolitics,
an image the size of the world.
Asking what role can scale play in altering what is mapped and measured, 
the 2023 edition of transmediale festival explores the impact of living 
in the aftermath of the post-digital and how technological scale sets 
conditions for relations, feelings, democratic processes, and

** Expanded Festival Programme
Along with the four-day festival at Akademie der Künste, an expanded 
programme will take place throughout the city. Generating critical 
conversations around how technology and its precise systems of 
measurement can be reassembled, Out of Scale is a free citywide 
exhibition taking place within the city’s networks and infrastructures.

Vorspiel (https://vorspiel.berlin/collection) , the joint project space 
programme of transmediale and CTM and traditionally the prelude of both 
festivals, will take place across multiple project spaces in the city 
from 20 January. Our long-term partner CTM 
(https://www.ctm-festival.de/)  kicks off their festival on 27 January, 
and continuing our partnership we are excited to have a collaboration 
for the 2023 edition again.
