Seasons of Media Arts 2019 – City of Participative Visions

Seasons of media arts 2019
© ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien

Within the framework of Seasons of Media Arts, media art installations distributed throughout the entire urban area will be presented decentrally in the urban space, which address the issue of public access to data and thematize the development of the smart city.

The works present an idea of a city in which technology is not used to collect data about residents, but enables citizen participation and transparency in political decision-making processes. The virtual urban space that is created in the sense defined by Seasons of Media Arts, which is characterized by interaction and knowledge transfer, contributes to the establishment of a digitally connected city in which the digital self-determination of the inhabitants is in the foreground.
