From November 20, 2020 until November 22, 2020

Taking place November 20–22, 2020, the Driving the Human Opening Festival will showcase and critically engage with the urgencies of our time. The festival will publicly discuss and condense questions and visions for shaping a sustainable and collective future by combining science, technology, and art.

In a digital broadcast accessible to all, the festival invites scholars, artists, designers, and other multidisciplinary participants to launch a debate on the themes currently defining our existence – from the human to non-human, from existence to co-existence, from digital to analogue. As a catalyst for experimentation, the festival formulates the questions that will orient the next phase of the Driving the Human investigation.

The festival takes place on the premises of ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, and will be broadcast to the world. Over the course of three days and inside a specially built scenography, the large-scale festival combines different formats, interweaving live programming with pre-recorded segments. The program brings inspiring speakers and visionary voices to the fore, in search of the constructive frictions that define our contemporary moment.
