transmediale // design akademie berlin CC BY SA 4.0

With its distinctive cultural and historical attributes the city of Berlin significantly coins the interplay between science, art and technology and thereby just the sort of nervous, high-tension field in which media can (probably most likely) be localized. In a first draft the Atlas of MediaThinking and MediaActing in Berlin presents the attempt to uncover these diverse origins and developments and to provide an an-archaeological perspective not only on the ways in which, since the late 1940s, media have been theorized here, but also on how they have been artistically, socio-culturally and technically negotiated. The title of the project is meant to be understood programmatically: the decision for the terms Thinking and Acting (as opposed to media science/studies and media art) opens the discussion for positions that have often been ignored in the academic discourse. It aims to genealogically trace out the lines of development along which a constructive engagement with media has been able to unfold.
