Winchester School of Art

Research project: transmediale

Currently Active: 

Since February 2013 the Winchester School of Art has worked in partnership with transmediale - the world-renowned media arts festival and year-round project based in Berlin. Each year, transmediale presents new positions in the fields of art, culture and technology to an audience of more than 20,000 visitors who experience an extensive range of exhibitions, conferences, screenings, performances and publications.

From Winchester key activities are co-ordinated through WSA's Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media which shares a number of areas of mutual interest with transmediale across the fields of media arts, cultural theory and politics, aesthetics and digital culture.

Activities linking WSA and transmediale relate to these shared interests shared research projects, joint workshops, curatorial developments related to transmediale and its all-year platform “reSource transmedial culture,” various educational platforms and events, and WSA's participation in the planning activities and events leading towards transmediale festivals and the reSource activities.

WSA and transmediale are also keen to involve students as an active part of the partnership and establish a long-term link that represents the Winchester scholars' interest in digital culture, media and critical contemporary arts.

This partnership also consolidates important high-level links the School has with Europe.

transmediale 2014

In the 2014 festival, Professors Ryan Bishop and Jussi Parikka curated one of the three conference streams: An Afterglow of the Mediatic.

This stream offered insights into waste and mines, data and hardware—the long tails of unintended consequences—in a way that entangles issues of labour, geopolitics, economics, media and the Earth into a weird planetary constellation.
