transmediale.06 Berlin


Berlin, February 3 - 7, 2006

Akademie der Kuenste
Berlin, Hanseatenweg 10


The transmediale.06 conference runs under the title 'Reality Addicts' and deals with artistic and social ideas that don't stop at the borders of mediatised reality. 'Reality Addicts' does not approach the relationship of media and reality from the perspective of technologies that impose specific perceptions or constructions of reality. Rather, within five panels and four lectures the conference explores ways in which these constructions can be subverted, exaggerated or reduced to absurdity. 'Reality Addiction' is a positive, affirmative attitude towards reality, faithful to the power of humour as a form of critique and social practice. Being addicted to reality means to long ever-more for it, always contradictory to and inconsistent with what we already know. The conference offers a reality-check of the present, taken from artistic, cultural and socially committed perspectives.

Image & Imagination Conference, NYU

Image and Imagination
Image and Imagination

Thursday, October 13 - Saturday, October 15, 2005
at New York University

During the last few decades, the growing importance of images has triggered intensive public debate. Following the "linguistic turn" of the humanities during the 20th century, an "iconic turn" could lead to an equally fundamental reconstitution not only of the humanities but also our ways of communication. The conference will bring together experts from the USA and Europe who will address issues of the individual and collective imagination in creating and understanding images.
