About Transitland EUROPA
Transitland EUROPA is a collaborative project between InterSpace in Bulgaria (, D Media in Romania ( and Videoaktiv in Germany (www.videoaktiv- to create a video archive of 100 works spanning 20 years, starting from the fall of the Berlin wall.

Since much of the history of the "new" European countries is being represented from the outside, this is an attempt to present a history from within. The archive will serve as a visual timeline of transition - from the shape of the revolutions, to the role of the media and consumerism, the various histories of privatisation, delocalisation, and migration, to the erasure of old borders and the creation of new ones. 90 older works (1989 to 2008) and 10 newly commissioned videos (2008) will be selected for the archive by a jury of co-organisers and external experts. The output of the project includes the production of archive jukeboxes and DVD compilations that will travel to different venues in Europe, a website and online version of the archive for international access, the production and distribution of a print publication and DVD insert, and a combination of screenings, exhibitions and conferences in Berlin (Feb 2009), Sofia (Mar 2009), and Bucharest (Apr 2009).
