Coding da Vinci Kick-Off

Coding da Vinci Kick-Off: Sat, 07.05. – Sun, 08.05.2022, 10 am – 5:30 pm CEST
Coding Culture: Sat, 07.05.22, 8 pm CEST

The cultural hackathon "Coding da Vinci 2022" is coming to Baden-Württemberg and will once again show the surprising possibilities of open cultural data. On the occasion of the kick-off event on Saturday and Sunday, May 7 and 8, the ZKM will set the mood with a free concert evening on May 7 at 8 pm and present live coding performances by outstanding artists.

Coding da Vinci Baden-Württemberg 2022 offers coding and culture enthusiasts, as well as anyone who feels like developing new ideas with like-minded people, the chance to get in touch with cultural institutions from their region to design new approaches to our digital cultural heritage. From apps, websites, VR/AR implementations, interactive installations to data visualizations, there are no creative limits for the participants.

At the kick-off on May 7 and 8 at the ZKM Karlsruhe and online via livestream, representatives of the cultural institutions will present their data sets, explain their background and technical details, and answer questions. Afterwards, the participants will have the opportunity to get together in teams and develop their project ideas with the support of the representatives of the cultural institutions.

Closing the first day of the kick-off event on Saturday, May 7, visitors will get an insight into the artistic practice and creative technique of live coding, in which computer programs are written in real time and on stage, at the concert "Coding Culture" starting at 8 pm. Visitors will be able to look over the shoulders of the performers as they spontaneously produce sound and images while experiencing an audiovisual concert program. Closely related to mathematics and computer science, live coding is a powerful tool for promoting artistic research, digital creation, and technological literacy.

»Coding Culture« is part of the »on-the-fly« project and is co-funded by the European Union's Creative Europe program. It takes place in cooperation with the Institute for Music Informatics and Musicology at the Karlsruhe University of Music.

With performances by Elina Lukijanova, Michele Samarotto, Daniel Kurosch Höpfner, Alex McLean and Lizzy Wilson.
