New Design Tactical Media Files + Reports & Documentation Amsterdam and Liverpool events online

We are very happy and proud that the new responsive design of the Tactical Media Files documentation resource is available online now, beautifully designed by Jeroen Joosse (who also delivered the visual design of the original TMF website), and implemented by developer André van Toly.

The main purpose of this redesign was to make the resource better accessible on other media devices and able to scale to virtually any size screen (hence a ‘responsive’ design). If for any reason someone would fee ‘nostalgic’ about the accustomed web-design we left that in place at the following address:

We will fine tune the new design further in the coming months, but meanwhile have been busy and there’s quite some other news as well, so do read on:

Cool Mediators Foundation is transitioning

The Cool Mediators Foundation was created in 2009 to host public events and develop web based software tools for interactive discussions in the public domain about art, culture, politics and society.

The foundation is currently working on a new series of projects that investigate the relationship between media culture, art & design, and social and political urgencies. Cool Mediators acts as an organisational logistic unit and an editorial catalyst between public interest organisations and engaged citizens.

Our current project (2014-2016) is called Tactical Media Connections, a research trajectory that includes expert meetings, the editorial preparation of an international anthology on Tactical Media to be published by the MIT Press in the first half of 2018, the redesign and further extension of the Tactical Media Files online documentation platform, and a series of public events in the first half of 2017 in The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

For more information on this project series please check the Tactical Media Files blog and this article about the Tactical Media Connections research trajectory, while our website awaits its redesign.


Cool Mediators is an independent not for profit organization registered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and has been supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL, the Democracy and Media Foundation, the Digital Pioneers program, Knowledgeland foundation, and De Balie, centre for culture and politics in Amsterdam.
