transmediale 2019 focusesed on how feelings are made into objects of technological design and asks what role emotions and empathy play within digital culture.
One of the key questions of the festival was “What moves you?”, referring not only to an emotional response but also to the infrastructures and aesthetics that govern how affect becomes mobilized as a political force today.
