|10:30 am: Panel Media: “Think New Spatial System Now!”|
Curator: Charlotte Tamschick, TAMSCHICK MEDIA + SPACE, Berlin
During the lockdown, cultural institutions such as museums and theatres were forced to re-curate their objects and works and find innovative ways of communication. They showed us how virtual spaces can be re-designed. However, a real experience is often lacking; we need physical contact again, the social dimension. How important is real space? What the implementation/interpretation of content in real and virtual spaces at museums, exhibitions, concert halls and theatres could look like in the future is discussed by curator Charlotte Tamschick with:
Nathalie van Sasse van Ysselt (Madison Square Garden, New York), Patrik de Jong (Artificial Rome, Berlin) and Cedric Kiefer (onformative, Berlin) and Franziska Ritter (Im/material Theatre Spaces, Berlin).
12:45 pm: Panel Universities and Industry: Scenography & Experience Design: Quo vadis?
Curator: Jean-Louis Vidière Ésèpe
