Digital Lab #3: Prototyping Futures

I am happy to be invited to Digital Lab#3, where I will be speaking about the chances of virtual worlds and digital art practice, to embrace marginalized narratives and voices and to build more collective futures.

“How can cultural institutions develop a digital mindset and what is involved? What role can cultural institutions play in breaking down barriers and strengthening participation? How can they design discrimination-free spaces? How is their collaboration with communities and artists changing? Our Digital Lab #3 is dedicated to these and other current questions from digital cultural practice under the motto Prototyping Futures. It focuses on working on strategies and visions for cultural institutions of the future. To this end, we would like to engage in an intensive exchange with the participants and all interested parties.

Digital Lab #3 will take place on October 11 and 12, 2022 in Leipzig and online. It is the third academy in the framework of Fonds Digital and the first physical meeting - a special moment for all participants after two editions that could only take place digitally. Our Lab #3 brings together female artists, scientists, developers and net activists with the teams of collaborative projects funded by Fonds Digital and opens a forum for digital complicity to shape inclusive (post-)digital cultural spaces. At the same time, the academy offers numerous opportunities for exchange of experience, coaching and reflection on the results achieved so far in Fonds Digital.”
