transmediale 2k+12 in/compatible
Incompatibility is the condition arising when things are not working together. Given the current worldwide proclamations of crisis, be they political, financial, technological or environmental, it may seem as if incompatible elements and situations are everywhere, that everything is failing. Ironically, it is the supposedly ever-more compatible media-scape, where everything connects, that render such crises instantly visible. With the theme in/compatible, the festival probes the productive and destructive sides of incompatibility as a fundamental condition of cultural production.
