Futurity is a concept that examines what the ‘future’ as a conditional and creative enterprise can be. At its heart lays the intricate need to counter political and economic turmoil with visionary futures. With FUTURITY NOW! transmediale.10 explores what roles internet evolution, global network practice, open source methodologies, sustainable design and mobile technology play in forming new cultural, ideological and political templates. transmediale.10 invites artists, scientists, media activists, thinkers and visionaries to ask not what the future has in store for us, but what do we have in store for the future? On the evening of 2 February 2010 it will finally happen: transmediale.10 will no longer be the future but the present! Come and celebrate with us as the festival opens at the House of World Cultures. It is free of charge and no ticket is needed except for the speeches in the auditorium. Welcome â€“ and launch yourself into Futurity …Now!
Berlin, from 2 to 7 February 2010
