hyper presence influences our living together, our work processes and political actionability. Beyond
that it will be discussed which strategies and abilities are necessary to react to these developments.
In form of lectures, performances, workshops, screenings, concerts and art installations transmediale. 11
presents an interdisciplinary forum for discussion which invites the visitor to interact. In the context of the
conference BODY:RESPONSE international renowned speakers including , Franco ‚BIFO‘ Berardi, Tim
Etchells, Jordan Crandall and Carolyn Guertin will lecture. Audio-visual live performances will present et
