CTM & TRANSMEDIALE
Unlike often assumed CTM
(formerly club transmediale
) is NOT
identical with the transmediale
, Berlin's international festival for art and digital culture. Nor is CTM a part of transmediale or does belong to its organization. Although we almost have the same name, CTM is a financially and curatorially independent project, that is organized by the DISK – Initiative Bild & Ton.
Yet CTM and transmediale closely cooperate to strongly link both events due to obvious similarities in aims, content and approach.
is a platform for artistic presentation and critical reflection on the role of digital technologies in present-day society. The annual festival provides a forum for communication between artists, those working in the media and a wide range of experts, offering a stimulating environment for the presentation of major new projects from digital culture. Core areas of the festival are the annual conference on the respective festival topic, a biannual thematic exhibition and the open award competition.
transmediale is a project of Kulturprojekte Berlin
, takes place at HKW
and is funded by the Federal Cultural Foundation of Germany.
The CTM festival is held simultaneously with the transmediale festival, yet takes place at different venues in Berlin.
