List of the 'reSource transmedial culture berlin' network
The 'reSource transmedial culture berlin' is an initiative of the transmediale festival for art and digital culture, Berlin. From September 2011 to February 2014 it was curated and developed by Tatiana Bazzichelli, in cooperation with CTM/DISK, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien and the Post-Media Lab of the Leuphana University of Lueneburg. It continues in this spirit as both a process of distributed curating and research and as a framework for transmediale's all-year programme activities with decisive touchdowns at each festival.
The objective of the reSource is to act as a link between the cultural production of art festivals and collaborative networks in the field of art and technology, hacktivism and politics. In the words of Tatiana Bazzichelli, "the ReSource aims to create a trans-genre project of networking, curating and research by envisioning the festival as a peer-production context of sharing knowledge and practices".
This list comprises of members of the reSource network and is open for anyone to join. Mostly it consists of a conversation between different transmediale affiliated spaces and people in Berlin and internationally. The list can in itself be seen as a resource through which to share ideas, information and to coordinate events and people.
Why reSource? Source codes are useful to modify a program or understand how it works. Taking this notion more broadly, reSource is used as a starting point from which a distributed sharing process, and a common executable (artistic) program, is produced.
The launch of the reSource initiative took place at transmediale 2012 with a constellation of workshops, talks and performances distributed into five different sub-themes: reSource methods, reSource activism, reSource networks, reSource markets and reSource sex. After transmediale 2012, the reSource extended its activity proposing a series of events to continue the dialogue further with the local and translocal communities in Berlin, towards the continuity of the festival in presentation, distribution and critical reflection in peer to peer development.
This network platform wants to encourage the sharing and development of experiences, questions and issues, which are addressed to artistic and other communities within (and beyond) digital cultural production.
Artistic and hacktivist practices are not only thought as a resource for producing cultural innovation, but also as a strategic challenge to generate media criticism – and to reflect on modalities of artistic production in the framework of digital culture and network economy.
We invite artists, cultural producers, hackers, activists, and gender-situated communities active in the city of Berlin and in the broader field of net culture - regionally and internationally - to share and co-develop experiences, experiments and reflections in and through digital and post-digital culture.
