XLt analysis of TRansmediale BWPWAP – v.1


{ XLt examines “Back When Pluto Was A Planet”}

XLterrestrials will be doing our usual Transmediale Festival analysis, cause… well… we haven’t yet been able to escape to a tropical island…i.e. where the lemurs live, and fewer anthropocene-sters roam. And we instead have a knaack for finding ourselves … in the vortex … of cold germanic, mechanistic futures….

< 29.01 – 03.02Transmediale 2013- BWPWAP at Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt

< 25.01-03.02 > Club Transmediale, at HAU and many other berlin venues.
