Berlin Transmediale International Media Arts Festival
The Berlin Transmediale International Media Arts Festival, is a forum promoting communication between artists, media workers and the public, focusing on art and digital culture. Transmediale includes exhibitions, conference, live performances, artist presentations and a variety of fringe events throughout Berlin, Germany. The Festival, which was founded originally as a video art festival, has taken place annually, in Berlin, ever since 1988.
First conceived in close relation to the Berlin Film Festival, the festival changed its name from VideoFest to Transmediale in 1997/98, thus reflecting the fact that it had broadened to encompass a wide range of multimedia-related art forms.
