transmediale.10 / FUTURITY NOW! ... extension

Dear Spectrites,

for those of you in Berlin who didn't have a chance to the see the  
transmediale.10 exhibitions, including FUTURE OBSCURA, the Award  
Nominees (and winners!) as well as the 'Futures Exchange' works,  
there is one more day of full opening today (Tuesday, February 9, 2010)

transmediale.10 is taking part  in the fundraising campaign for Haiti  
initiated by EUNIC - the EU Association of National Cultural  
Institutes via its current chair, the Instituto Cervantes Berlin (one  
of transmediale.10's satellite partners). During the charity event,  
which will take place the evening of the 9th of February, the  
exhibitions are open from 11.00 am until 9.30 p.m.

Apart from the exhibition FUTURE OBSCURA, curated by Honor Harger,  
with works by artists including Julius von Bismarck, Ryoji Ikeda and  
Gebhard Sengmüller, works nominated for the transmediale Award 2010  
including Buscando al Sr. Goodbar by the Canadian artist Michelle  
Teran can also be seen. Installations as part of the Futures Exchange  
within the festival architecture by raumlaborberlin, as well as the  
thousand-year composition Longplayer by Jem Finer and the interactive  
Tweetscreen by Jens Wunderling will continue through the extension.

With this campaign transmediale.10 wants to make a contribution to  
the reconstruction of free and independent media in Haiti. Proceeds  
collected through the exhibition will be donated to Haitian 'Radio  
Métropole', which was severely damaged by the earthquake in January.  
Radio Métropole is one of the most significant sources of independent  
news, information and culture in Haiti, broadcasting again from a  
temporary facility in their garden. Supporting free and independent  
media in Haiti helps guarantees the broader reconstruction and relief  
effort in the country.

Herbstradio Berlin (99,1 MHz) and Resonance FM (104,4) have been  
broadcasting live from transmediale.10 and will participate in the  
action and are including reportages from or about 'Radio Métropole'  
activities in the coming days.


The Benefit Concert for Haiti itself, presented by EUNIC in  
collaboration with the House of World Cultures features four  
performers from four countries - from Haiti, Karlex Antoine and his  
Band, the renowned Spanish Flamenco-Musician Gerardo Núñez, the  
Finnish Pianist Jarkko Riihimäki and Damir Bačikin Feat. Arzet  
Quintet Berlin & Sonik Theatre.

Concert 09.02.2010 | 19 Uhr / 7 pm
