Artistic Interventions

Distributed across the building of Akademie der Künste, nine artistic interventions consider new scalar tactics through practice-based and performative approaches.

Focusing on long-term relationships with artists, since 2020 transmediale has built on its established residency programme. In collaboration with a variety of partner institutions – Pro Helvetia, Chile, University of the Arts Berlin, and the Berlin Senate for Culture and Europa – the residency programme of 2022 was centered around the question of how scale impacts the technological conditions we are living in.

transmediale hosted over ten residents throughout 2022. Part of the artistic interventions are projects developed during the residency in Berlin and are presented for the first time at the festival.

In this performance, Nina Davies and two dancers explore how movement is performed online, across digital spaces with digital avatars in front of screens. Taking place at different times and durations throughout the festival, the dancers perform for invisible crowds of unknown people and algorithms online.
