in/compatible research workshop & conference
reSource beta: in/compatible Research – Workshop/Conference

The reSource launch at transmediale 2012 was anticipated by a beta-reSource event in November 16–18, 2011.
In the context of developing a platform for knowledge exchange, and research across the arts and sciences, transmediale and the Digital Aesthetics Research Centre/Centre for Digital Urban Living (Aarhus University) have established a partnership to foster new forms of collaborative peer-review and knowledge dissemination. Departing from the theme of the upcoming transmediale festival in 2012: in/compatible, a PhD workshop and conference is took place on November 16–18, at the Vilém Flusser Archive, Universität der Künste, Berlin.

This event addressed the theme of the transmediale festival in a number of ways: in/compatible interfaces, in/compatible methods, and in/compatible markets, focusing on the unresolved tensions in-between different technologies, their cultures of production and use, as well as the tensions between different approaches to contemporary media culture. The PhD workshop and the conference will lead to a collaborative peer-reviewed publication presented as part of the programme of the festival in 2012.

The actual workshop was restricted to the PhD students selected from our Open Call last summer. However, the conference programme was be open to the public.
