Likemind Berlin: 4 Dec 2009

likemind berlinPhew. It seems to be the day of organizing events. Besides TEDxKreuzberg (see my blog post), it’s also time for a brief update on Likemind Berlin (Facebook page).

The next Likemind will be off schedule. Instead of the regular third Friday of the month, the November and December installment of Likemind will (globally) be merged into a single event on Friday, 4 Dec. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I think it won’t be too much trouble for anyone, eh?

On the other hand we’ll be working with the good folks of Transmediale for the next two Likeminds (that’s December and January). As I’m sure you know, Transmediale is a very special art festival in Berlin that has been dealing with new media art since that term was really edgy. No, that sounds wrong – what I’m trying to say is: Transmediale has always been on the cutting edge of media art, and has an international reputation that drives people from all over the world to Berlin every time. It’s really that good.

I sat down with Clemens Lerche of Transmediale earlier today and afterwards he gave me a brief interview in which he gives us a glimpse at what to expect at Transmediale 2010. The theme of the festival is Futurity Now, and it’s about nothing less than shaping the future (the video is in German):

Hope to see you at Likemind!
