Wednesday, November 18, 2020, 2 – 5 pm, Kunstzentrum Karlskaserne, Ludwigsburg

At Raumwelten Digital, young companies, initiatives, and institutes of higher education from Germany present new approaches and business models in the context of architecture and scenography, digital and immersive media as well as analogue-digital applications.

Available in Live Stream

Raumwelten Digital bridges innovative applications, artistic practices and successful business cases and emphasises the importance of digital technologies in the field of spatial communication. Long before the coronavirus pandemic, digital tools have already been expanding real space and enabling purely virtual experiences of space. Since its foundation in 2012, the Raumwelten focus has therefore been on combining the analogue and the digital, the real and the virtual. This hybridisation of the production and perception of spaces and places is thus not a new phenomenon but has been accelerated considerably by new technologies such as augmented reality, and social challenges such as pandemics or ecological crises. While we are unable to offer an exhibition for Raumwelten Digital with VR experiences and interactive installations this year, the six speakers will address different aspects of digitalised space – including Lightshape (Stuttgart) on innovative virtual reality applications, Christian Schlaeffer for the Staatstheater Augsburg, usomo (Berlin) on immersive sound experiences, and Laura Spinadel (BUSarchitektur, Vienna) on urban development processes in 3D. A tangible experience of Raumwelten Digital is possible on the 3D multi-user platform that Raumwelten has developed together with Lightshape and which enables an interactive visit to Kunstzentrum Karlskaserne with the virtual Raumwelten “Lichtwolke” Pavilion as well as the avatar-bound and speech-based exchange between participants. Because with or without the coronavirus, as Raumwelten Digital makes clear: the future of space, new ways of construction, and social participation begins now!
