El festival transmediale presenta la convocatoria Vilém Flusser para artistas en residencia de dos meses de duración a partir de abril 2012, que incluye viajes, estancia, dietas y un estudio de trabajo en el Flusser Archive de la University of Arts in Berlin (UDK). Para aplicar hay que enviar, antes del 31 de agosto, un proyecto de investigación artística relacionado con la exploración de los límites y las capacidades de lo transdisciplinar y transmedia en la cultura contemporánea.

La próxima edición, que por cierto girará alrededor del concepto de “incompatibilidad” desde distintas perspectivas. Las obras seleccionadas formarán parte del programa de exposiciones, proyectiones, performances y conferencias, y podrán pertenecer a cualquier género y formato siempre y cuando vayan orientadas a la exploración de la naturaleza incompatible de las culturas tecnológicas contemporáneas: tensiones irresueltas, formatos que no casan, tecnologías que no existen.
