Presented by reSource transmedial culture berlin and transmediale, festival for art and digital culture berlin. Curated by Tatiana Bazzichelli, developed in collaboration with Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, CTM/Disk, the Centre for Digital Cultures/Leuphana University of Lüneburg, and Mindpirates e.V.

In the current development of digital culture we are experiencing a condition of overflow. More information is being transmitted than machines can process and humans can handle. Producing more data generates more ownership and control, but also increases the desire to be part of an extended connectivity.

In panels, invited speakers will discuss issues like opacity, illegibility, and darkness of data production in the digital info-sphere and consequent tactics of autonomous artistic production. At the core of the programme are themes such as queer responses to digital identification technologies and “gamification”, the permeation of economical, political, and social contexts by game elements, together with the media industries’ conditioning of online, urban, and exurban spaces. After discussing the condition of the hybrid artistic production in Berlin in a broken economy the first issue of the transmediale magazine will be launched. A sonic abstraction of the reSource network of free and independent spaces in Berlin is experienced during a psycho-geographic walk, which concludes with a programme of performances and concerts at Mindpirates e.V. curated by CTM.

Furthermore, during the event Standard Reserve: The reSource / transmediale Residency Project will be launched, whose production starts with a workshop and will lead to transmediale 2014.

Participants: the reSource network, Carsten Lisecki (de), Mathias Fuchs (at/de), Paolo Ruffino (it/de), Markos Bastos (br), Julian Oliver (nz/de), Daphne Dragona (gr), Ricard Gras (br/de), Rózsa Farkas (uk), Harry Sanderson (uk), Vera Tollmann (de), Anthony Iles (uk), Josephine  Berry Slater (uk), Zach Blas (us), John Wild (uk), Jamie Allen (ca), David Gauthier (ca).
