Upgrade! Berlin


Field trip to Trampoline Berlin

Upgrade! Berlin: field trip to Trampoline Berlin :: Wednesday, May 9 at 7 pm at Trampoline Berlin, Rungestrasse 20; near U - Station Jannowitzbrücke.

Meet the curators of Trampoline Berlin for a talk about the curatorial agenda of this place. We are especially interested in finding out more about their approaches towards innovative presentation formats of media art. The video of this evening will be available online by the end of May.

Trampoline is dedicated to the promotion of new technology art and artists and aims to present cutting edge art in an informal atmosphere; encouraging new artists to exhibit work to a real audience, whilst providing a platform for established artists working in new directions. Trampoline began life in 1997 as Nottingham's first ever platform event for new media art.

In 2001, founders Miles Chalcraft and Anette Schäfer moved to Berlin and expanded Trampoline to Germany. Co-founder Gareth Howell continued Trampoline Nottingham throughout 2001 and 2002. Since then Trampoline has been left in the capable hands of a series of guest curators including Sharmila Cogger and Lizzy Whirrity, Nottingham art based collective, REACTOR and now Emma Lewis. The most recent events took place in October and December 2005, as part of the Radiator Festival. Work is always selected for Trampoline from an open call for submissions. Please find more information here.
