ACROSS & BEYOND
A transmediale Reader on Post-digital Practices, Concepts, and Institutions
Ryan Bishop, Kristoffer Gansing, Jussi Parikka & Elvia Wilk (Eds.)
Moving from analog to digital technology in media art and theory has created changes we have yet to completely understand and absorb. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the transmediale festival in Berlin, Across & Beyond reflects on this rapidly changing landscape. Divided into three sections, “Imaginaries,” “Interventions,” and “Ecologies,” the reader includes new contributions from internationally recognized theorists, artists and designers on media activism, media archaeology, critical media processes and (post-) anthropocentric perspectives from past festival participants. Contributors include Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke, Jamie Allen and David Gauthier, Clemens Apprich and Ned Rossiter, Tatiana Bazzichelli, Benjamin Bratton, Florian Cramer, Dieter Daniels, Geoffroy de Lagasnerie, Daphne Dragona, Keller Easterling, Olga Goriunova, Louis Henderson, Geraldine Juarez, Olia Lialina, Alessandro Ludovico, Rosa Menkman, Julian Oliver and Danja Vasiliev, Erica Scourti, Cornelia Sollfrank, Telekommunisten, Tiziana Terranova and YoHa (Graham Harwood and Matsuko Yokokoji). With over 300 pages this transmediale reader is a welcome tool in understanding and staying current with our digital world.
