The Art Hack Day Berlin, LEAP, exhibition is one of the main exhibitions of the transmediale festival this year. Over 70 artists and hackers will create new works for the exhibition within the festival theme afterglow. The starting point is Monday evening on the 27th of January and 48 hours later, on the 29th, the exhibition will be open for the public.
