'Transformers' is the Berlin manifestation of two years work by eleven 
graduating artists from the Transart Institute. The Transart Institute 
has called upon Trampoline to oversee the presentation of final works 
developed over two years of rigorous creative investigation. We are 
invited to examine the outcome of their determined yet diverse 
trajectories. Working across film, painting, digital graphics, 
installation, sculpture, photography and sound; personal, social, 
cultural and political histories have been re-visited, re-interpreted, 
re-shaped and re-figured to reveal the depth of creative potential. 
Collectively, the body of MFA work speaks of transformation.

Transformers is curated by Trampoline, agency for Art and Media, founded 
by Miles Chalcraft and Anette Schäfer in 1997.
Trampoline is based in Nottingham and Berlin and supports and develops 
artists working at the critical edge of emerging
technologies and digital culture. Over the last 14 years, Trampoline has 
gained an international reputation with its diverse
events and programmes, such as the Radiator Festival: International 
Festival for Art and Media; the Radiator Symposium;
First Play Berlin and Tracing Mobility.

Transart Institue offer an international low-residency MFA and a 
practice-based PhD program for working artists in a highly
individualized format. The innovative MFA program consists of three 
intensive summer residencies with lectures, workshops,
critiques, seminars, performances and exhibitions in Europe and two 
winter residencies in New York. The Institute's programs
are geared towards the development of a sustainable artistic praxis 
rather than training in certain media or genres,
challenging students to think conceptually and work creatively in new 
ways. Current students work with animation, curating,
digital media, film, gaming, graphic design, installation, painting, 
performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, sound,
text, video, virtual reality.
