What is the potential of refusal? What role do belief and compromise play in postures and acts of refusal? At a two-day symposium, transmediale 2021–22 explores the topic with an interdisciplinary program of lectures, panel discussions, performances and film screenings. Entitled for refusal, this festival edition of transmediale has progressed over the course of a year since January 2021. Together with the exhibition abandon all hope ye who enter here at the Akademie der Künste, the symposium at HKW forms the final part of the festival and, starting out from refusal as generative space, develops a pragmatic confrontation with its impossibilities.
