TRANSMEDIALE
With RESPONSE:ABILITY, transmediale.11 puts forward a call for action in terms how we live on and with the Internet today. Having become a central stage for the unfolding of our public and private lives, we must ask not only how this experience of online-liveness affects and transforms our bodies and subjectivities but also, importantly, what responsibilities and possibilities this engenders for participating in the continuous process of its evolution. Especially now, with economic and political mega-infrastructures striving for control and regimentation, threatening to make a smooth space into a striated one.ù
From 1st to 10th February
BERLINALE
About 400 films are shown every year as part of the Berlinale’s public programme, the vast majority of which are world or European premieres. Films of every genre, length and format can be submitted for consideration. The Berlinale is divided into different sections, each with its own unique profile: big international movies in the Competition, independent and art-house productions in Panorama, movies specially for a young audience in the Generation section, the most exciting German cinema productions in Perspektive Deutsches Kino, an in-depth look at films from “distant” countries and experimental forms in the Forum, as well as an investigation of diverse cinematic possibilities in the Berlinale Shorts. The programme is rounded off by a thematic Retrospective and a Homage, which focuses on the lifework of a great cinema personality.
From 10th to 20th February

    Danke! 😉
    integrerò le mostre temporanee nei musei…un po’ alla volta!

    sehr gut! 😛

    The video is very sleek and the topic itself is very interesting. Rethinking urban mobility is one of the real challenge we are facing (or we should be facing).

    By the way…every time I watch what you are suggesting, I am astonished…I think I have been too much “countryside tudor and victorian oriented” lately!
