Essay Artwork

Postcards from the Metaverse speculates on the value of the popular 20th century medium – the postcard – in providing accessible and underrepresented perspectives on a newly- hyped infrastructure


Former transmediale artistic director Kristoffer Gansing applies a bit of home-grown numerology to reminisce about the secrets of Vorspiel!


The reSource network has been an extremely valuable resource in the process of establishing and running SPEKTRUM Berlin. It allowed us to connect with like-minded people in the city, to start up new collaborations, and to learn from those facing similar issues in running project spaces.


The essay summarizes the Czech-Brazilian cultural theorist and media philosopher Vilém Flusser’s ideas on the apparatus, codes, and programmed and manipulated society. He ends his texts by highlighting the importance of artists who might be able to play with and against the apparatus and challenge mass media and their preprogrammed functions.


From 2011 to 2014, Tatiana Bazzichelli and a team of others designed a sprawling event program called “reSource transmedial culture Berlin,” which picked up on transmediale-related projects and flung them far further.


Since 2013 designtransfer – the gallery and communicates interface of the Faculty of Design, Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) and the public – participates yearly at Vorspiel to present various projects as exhibitions, installations, and talks related to their New Media & Design courses.

"Konzert-Installationen" sind hybride Formen, kompositorische Projekte, die formal und ästhetisch zwischen Klangkunst und traditioneller Performance liegen. Mit Objekten, bearbeiteten Klängen, Feldaufnahmen und geloopten Videos wird Laura.aLL eine neue Komposition und ein improvisiertes Stück aus ihrer Serie "Abstract shadows" präsentieren, die sich mit den Themen extremer Konsum und rücksichtsloser Akkumulation behandeln.

Laura.aLL (alias LauraL, Laura Leiner) ist eine Künstlerin und Forscherin mit einem multidisziplinären Hintergrund, der Musik, darstellende Kunst, Klangkunst, Video und Journalismus umfasst. Sie ist die Gitarristin der Band Músicas intermináveis para Viagem (Endlos Musik zu reisen, M.i.p.V) und hat an mehreren künstlerischen Projekten in Lateinamerika und Europa teilgenommen. Seit 2009 lebt Laura in Berlin, wo sie Projekte in den Bereichen Konzert-Installation, Klangkunst, Dark Ambient, experimentelle Musik und Kuratorin entwickelt.
