Along with nine other Cities of Media Arts in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network — Austin (United States), Braga (Portugal), Calí (Columbia), Changsha (China), Guadalajara (Mexico), Košice (Slovakia), Sapporo (Japan), Viborg (Denmark), and York (United Kingdom) — at the beginning of September 2020 Karlsruhe’s Department of Cultural Affairs invited media artists in their city to submit proposals for projects. Media artists from all over the world responded to the call. From Karlsruhe artists Sarah Degenhardt and Gerardo Nolasco-Rózsás were chosen.

Multimedia artist Sarah Degenhardt will create an artwork together with Portuguese sound artist João Carlos Costa Pinto from Braga. Multidisciplinary artist Gerardo Nolasco-Rózsás from Karlsruhe will work with Mexican artist Paris Díaz from Guadalajara. The two pairs of artists have time until the end of November to develop a media artwork via online collaboration.

Building Interdisciplinary Bridges to the Theme of Human Responsibility

Ever since the Industrial Revolution there has been ongoing debate about how technological change influences the way we live as a society and how it determines our relationship to our environment. The media artworks created during this project will reflect on and engage critically with the subject of Human Responsibility. The artworks will be presented internationally at the Košice Art & Tech Days as well as at other events and on the platforms of the Creative Cities participating in the project.
