Workshop Details

The workshop itself will unfold over three days (Jan 29-31) as a research and publication sprint – followed by presentations at transmediale festival for art and digital culture on Thursday Feb 1.

Online: Participants will publish 2000 words papers based on their application, on this blog. Deadline Dec 15.

Subsequently, each participant is responsible for commenting on the other panel papers (see the programme), as well as papers from one other selected panel (groups 1&2, 3&4, 5&6).

Day 1 & 2: Participants will – in panels – present do a 10 minute presentation  of their papers (with or without slides) followed by verbal feedback/discussion, building on the preliminary work online.

Day 2 & 3: After presentations and as a consequence of feedback, participants will be asked to
a) reduce their texts from 2000 to approx. 1000 words for publication.
b) reduce their presentation from 10 minutes to 5 minutes

At the end of the workshop, we will have produced an online publication with the 1000 word texts that will be available at the transmediale festival website, and have prepared for public presentations at transmediale festival.

Day 4: On Feb 1, the participants will launch the publication at transmediale festival. The launch event is divided into two modules of 90 minutes that mirrors the workshop presentations. Participants will do 5 minute presentations, followed by a 15 minute moderated discussion.

Final publication: Following the event, participants are invited to contribute longer academic papers (of 4-5000 words) to the associated open access online journal APRJA.
