At the beginning of the 20th century HELLERAU was founded as a joint project of industry, research and art and as a response to industrialization and changes in working and living conditions. With “Hybrid”, HELLERAU is establishing a new international platform, a laboratory, experimental and discourse space for the arts in the digital age and critical phases of global transformation processes. In cooperation with ARS ELECTRONICA (Linz), ZKM (Karlsruhe), ONASSIS STEGI (Athen), IRCAM (Paris) and others, the focus will be on international and local artists and collectives that explore, visualize, discuss and further develop the interfaces of technology, science, philosophy and society.
The launch of “Hybrid”, planned for March 2020, had to be postponed due to Covid-19. Therefore, residencies and fellowships will be developed starting in autumn 2020. In addition, Canadian electronic sound and new media artists will be presented and celebrated in collaboration with the international festival and network MUTEK in HELLERAU, PYLON and objekt klein a from March 11 to 14, 2021.
More information soon.
