TRANSIT media art and digital culture, a project of former students of the Master’s degree in arts and Culture management, UIC Barcelona

The seed of TRANSIT was born as the final project of a group of students of the Master’s course 2015-2016. Now it became real in the city of Berlin by hands of the founders Stella Roeber, Ines Liebich and Khatarina Leser. 



TRANSIT is a regular event series, that presents media art and digital culture in one of Berlin’s most iconic inner-city event locations. The projects’s aim is to connect up-and-coming local creatives with (international) established media artist, and to offer them a continuous platform for presenting their work to a broader audience. By hosting off-events that run parallel to established festivals and art fairs in Berlin, we profit from an already activated audience and can also reach visiting professionals, who come to Berlin to attend international events and congresses. In their exhibitions they join artists, designers, makers and media professionals, help build new networks, and encourage joint discourses across disciplines. As an all-female team of founders, they believe it is important and beneficial for the success of the project to ensure an even gender-balance between all participating artists and partners.

TRANSIT’s upcoming exhibition »Rendered Personas: Digital Perspectives on Image and Identity” is part of CTM / transmediale's Vorspiel, a program of distributed partner events in the field of digital art and culture, where a variety of partner venues invite local and international audiences to a series of exhibition openings, performances, interventions, artist talks and special events across the city of Berlin.

»Rendered Personas« presents 10+ media artists and creatives working at the intersection of art, design and technology, who explore the shifting concepts of perception, representation, and truth in virtual and 'real’ reality. The exhibition runs from Jan 27-30, 2018 and includes a variety of interactive installations, digital animations, holographic illusions, generative art, video works, VR, and much more. For their opening night on January 27th, 2018, They’ll host an additional event programme of artist talks, audio-visual performances, and live VJ/DJ Sets.
