Founding of Transmediale Berlin

Transmediale is founded as the VideoFilmFest in 1988. In the course of its thirty-year history, the festival shifts its focus from video to multimedia-based art forms and evolves into an international platform for digital art and culture. By gathering works, program brochures, publications, and documentation material from each festival edition, the transmediale/archive documents a substantial portion of the history of media and digital art and contributes to the archiving of experimental media culture in Berlin and internationally.
