From March 1st to 2nd, 2018, the conference »smARTplaces | INNOVATION in Culture« took place at the ZKM | Karlsruhe as part of the EU project »smARTplaces«.

Not only is digitization now in art’s DNA, cultural institutions are beginning to embark on disruptive paths in order to facilitate and support innovative processes. The »smARTplaces | INNOVATION in Culture« conference analyzes possibilities, and also necessities, of digital renewal within culture and spotlights audience development.

Largely based on nowadays digital infrastructure, Manuel Roßner and Sebastian Zimmerhackl develop a curatorial and artistic approach which makes use of virtual spaces, worldwide instant communication and omnipresent devices. In their talk they give an insight into their version of a contemporary cultural practice.
