Driving the Human Festival
The online festival of »Driving the Human« publicly discussed and condensed questions and visions for shaping a sustainable and collective future by combining science, technology, and art.
The Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) and the ZKM invited 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 three-years-long investigation »Driving the Human«.
The program brought inspiring speakers and visionary voices to the fore, in search of the constructive frictions that define our contemporary moment.
