<nettime-ann> [event] tm.06 conf. 'Reality Addicts', Berlin 3-5 Feb 2006


Berlin, February 3 - 7, 2006

Akademie der Kuenste
Berlin, Hanseatenweg 10


The transmediale.06 conference runs under the title 'Reality Addicts' 
and deals with artistic and social ideas that don't stop at the 
borders of mediatised reality. 'Reality Addicts' does not approach 
the relationship of media and reality from the perspective of 
technologies that impose specific perceptions or constructions of 
reality. Rather, within five panels and four lectures the conference 
explores ways in which these constructions can be subverted, 
exaggerated or reduced to absurdity. 'Reality Addiction' is a 
positive, affirmative attitude towards reality, faithful to the power 
of humour as a form of critique and social practice. Being addicted 
to reality means to long ever-more for it, always contradictory to 
and inconsistent with what we already know. The conference offers a 
reality-check of the present, taken from artistic, cultural and 
socially committed perspectives.

In cooperation with the Federal Agency for Civic Education.
