alien metter 

Transmediale 2017

Haus der Kulturen der Welt



3 February - 5 March 2017


The special exhibition alien matter, curated by Inke Arns, focuses on neo-cybernetic couplings between humans, creatures and technologies, and human and nonhuman forces.


Berlin based and international artists raise questions about the state of our current environment and whether it has already passed the tipping point, becoming “alien matter” replaced by artificial intelligence and synthetic materials. The exhibiting artists include Morehshin Allahyari & Daniel Rourke, Constant Dullaart, Ignas Krunglevièius, Mark Leckey, Joep van Liefland, Sascha Pohflepp, Johannes Paul Raether, Maria Roszkowska & Nicolas Maigret, Suzanne Treister, and Pinar Yoldas.


Transmediale is a project by Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH in collaboration with Haus der Kulturen der Welt. It has been funded as a cultural institution of excellence by Kulturstiftung des Bundes since 2004.


The special exhibition alien matter is funded by LOTTO-Stiftung Berlin.
