DIGITAL ART+SOUND WEEKEND
70 VENUES IN BERLIN
JANUARY 28–30, 2011
On the weekend prior to the festivals, from 28–30 January 2011, transmediale, club transmediale (CTM), Create Berlin and a multitude of Berlin partners together invite you to the inaugural Digital Art & Sound (DAS) Weekend. At DAS Weekend 2011, more than 70 independent organisations, venues and individuals active in Berlin will present their activities by setting up their own events and opening doors to their spaces.transmediale & CTM are both crucially intertwined and also dependent on collaboration with the independent arts scene and have always felt that fostering this relation is key for the festivals. Due to decreasing support and funding in the media, sound and digital arts sector, they have joined forces with Create Berlin and called upon independent venues and platforms across Berlin to come together to showcase and promote the richness of existing activities in Berlin. DAS Weekend aims to draw attention to the many artists, spaces and initiatives active in Berlin with great commitment and exciting ideas to promote artistic work and discourse in the converging zones between digital arts, experimental music and sound.
Please note many DAS Weekend participating venues have exhibitions and projects continuing throughout February 2011.
