Organized HLRS and MSC

The Research and Creation Center for Computational Based Art, Culture and Economy MSC will support young creators, individually or associate in start-ups, introducing them to the perspectives the high tech tools are opening to society, to corporations with which they may further develop their ideas and to the knowledge concerning the meaning and the impact of the new technology on society as a whole.

The MSC will offer a CreativeLab, open to residencies where ideas and products may be put to essay; an Advanced School for the Computational Culture, where the main topics concerning eCulture will be examined and discussed in order to verify their meaning and impact, and an Observatory of eCulture aimed at gathering., analysing and publicising the available data on these topics.

KEYNOTE I

Abstract: Digital Technologies start to converge to form a cyber-world in which hardware and software together provide a new type of eco-system. In this new type of world solutions are born, live, and die at an unprecedented rate. This cyber-world starts to spill over into the real human world. It heralds a digital-human convergence that is about to change the human position in the world. With this digital-human convergence come hopes and fears that float in public discussions and private thought. What is it we are facing? What are the futures this might carry us to? How might this change the way we live, think, feel and act?

KEYNOTE II
I

The Center for Research Computing’s Spatial Studies Lab at Rice University consists of a group of Scholars, GIS Specialists, Designers, and developers, all working together to build online geospatial platforms. The Lab combines vector, raster, and other forms of data at the intersection of time and space in order to create web experiences and insights in the areas of cultural heritage, public health, social justice, disaster recovery, and climate change.

ZKM HERTZ LABOR
Ludger Brümmer

ZKM | Karlsruhe and In4Art run an European think-thank with artists and economists around the question: How to reshape the way we think about the economy in order to open space for new ideas? The group rethinks and reconceives economic frameworks, particularly around energy consumption in the 21st century.

It investigates how to disassemble technological and social trends before they get mainstream through an extropian perspective. This is being explored through a reversed manual approach. The journey will extract pieces of the economy and experience their exponential effects. This non-linear exploration is challenged through deep time and address our dependence: To Mint or Not To Mint. The think-thank experiments with changing mindsets.

During this presentation, you will have a live video connection with the think-tank at ZKM – and be part of their experiment transcending the microscope into a telescope. The session will be a combination of inspiration, experimentation and research.

Participants:
      • Nancy Bocken (Professor in Sustainable Business at Maastricht University)
      • Stefano Puntoni (Professor of Marketing at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM)

KEYNOTE V

Andreas Kaminski | Sebastian Hallensleben

Disinformation has proven to be one of the central problems of our current society. Already daunting tasks and problems (be it in the context of the current pandemic or with regard to climate change) are made even more difficult as a result. The question is how democracies can respond to disinformation. We want to show why an answer to this is difficult and what it can consist of.
