Transmediale | Opening 2012 in/compatible HKW Berlin

02. February 2012

During the 2012 festival a number of special projects relating to the in/compatible thematic as well as the 25 year anniversary were presented at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. These took place outside the framework of the curated exhibition and featured new works especially developed for the festival.

transmediale 2012 was an in/compatible being. Incompatibility is the condition that arises when things are not working together. With transmediale 2012, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt was investigating the productive and destructive sides of incompatibility as a fundamental condition for cultural production in times of crisis. In this context it called for a transversal approach.
