Focusing on contemporary technological art, activism and digital culture, the festival and its academic conference gathered thousands of visitors to its various events in the first week of February.

Under the theme of 'Conversation Piece', the curators, along with WSA co-organisers Ryan Bishop and Jussi Parikka, continued the School's four-year partnership with transmediale by presenting panels, workshops, discussions, and there were several distinguished keynote speakers such as Keller Easterling (Yale) and Eyal Weizman (Goldsmiths, London). Another major WSA event was a two-day workshop and a following discussion with the internationally influential designer, artist Burak Arikan about his critical collaborative mapping practice. WSA Head of School Ed D’Souza took part in the transmediale opening event Super School.

Currently WSA is preparing a book with transmediale’s artistic director, Kristoffer Gansing (pictured left), on post-digital culture, to be released by Sternberg Press (Berlin) next year for the anniversary festival in February 2017.
