Since the launch of the Regional S+T+ARTS Centres' challenges on , many European citizens have contributed to the image of the future.

Check out the interview with the mastermind behind the digital participatory tool Futures Canvas, about the power of collective speculation about the future, its implications and potential spillovers.

Christian, founder and director of STATE, is responsible for creative concepts and strategy. Futures Canvas is the further development of the digital toolkit part of the RIDE thinking model, a model developed to distil the learnings of years of cross-sectoral collaborative processes between science, art, society and business into a concise method that is applicable to other organizations and interested individuals.

For over four months, artist-in-residence Felix Gaedtke and his team from NowHere Media have been working collaboratively with the Local Expert Group on the project “Berlin 2037” as part of the S+T+ARTS Residency "New Modes of Mobility". Together they tackled the topic around smart and sustainable mobility from diverse perspectives. The development of the VR installation that will soon take you into the future of Berlin is in full process.

Based on the mobility challenge launched by Regional S+T+ARTS Center STATE and the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt we now ask each and every one of you: What do you think mobility will look like in the future? What ideas, wishes or fears do you have? With Futures Canvas, AKAW’s new participatory tool, you have now the opportunity to contribute to these questions by submitting your own speculations for a sustainable tomorrow and by engaging with the thoughts of others.

Are you up for speculating with us and are you curious to try out a new tool? 🟢🔵

The S+T+ARTS Residencies are entering a new stage within the framework of Repairing the Present that involves each and everyone of you. In collaboration with the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt and its RISE CITIES Program, STATE has launched two challenges circling around Berlin’s future of mobility and water on Futures Canvas, a digital tool that is now open for participation within the next weeks, until mid July. With these challenges we want to activate our collective intelligence and invite you to speculate with us:

🟢How might we rethink Berlin's future of urban mobility?
🔵How might we re-imagine our future relationship to our local water bodies?

What is Futures Canvas?
Futures Canvas is a participatory tool for collective speculation and envisioning futures together. The playful tool has been launched by AKAW and designed together with MENSCHMASCHINE. It invites participants to challenge their individual biases through confrontation with the thoughts of others and to submit own speculations on how the future might look like. The open result is a crowdsourced map of possible futures.

Enter Futures Canvas via futurescanvas.com and feel free to speculate with us!

Thank you to everyone who participated in RETHINKING BERLIN’S SUSTAINABLE FUTURES - WATER AND MOBILITY, our ArtScience Interplay as part of S+T+ARTS Academies! It felt great to connect with each and every one of you. It was a very insightful, warm afternoon with inspiring impulses by our artists in residence Felix Gaedtke and Johanna Schmeer that presented their artistic prototypes.

The event was also the starting point of “Futures Canvas”: a crowdsourcing tool by AKAW and designed by .studio. With the launch of this new crowdsourcing tool, we have created the opportunity to envision sustainable futures around the S+T+ARTS Residency topics through collective and playful futures exploration. The tool is open access and we invite you to share your future speculations with us. The more the merrier: Many diverse speculations mean a larger and more colorful Futures Canvas. Take part in co-creating and get into speculation mode via: www.futurescanvas.com!

What do you think: How might we rethink Berlin’s future of mobility? And how might we re-imagine our future relationship to Berlin-Brandenburg’s water ecosystem?

S+T+ARTS Residencies

In order to approach the challenges around Berlin’s water bodies, Studio Lapatsch|Unger and Johanna Schmeer conduct field research as part of the S+T+ARTS Residencies.

From an artistic, scientific and technological perspective, they are exploring both in participatory workshops and, among other partners, in collaboration with the research institutions Technische Universität Berlin and Leibnitz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, which aspects shape our local relationship to water and how it can be transformed into a new and sustainable context.
We are excited to learn more about the evaluations of the experiments and look forward to the new impulses!

Together with Local Expert Dr Parichehr Scharifi, we visited the studio of artist-in-residence Felix Gaedtke. Within the S+T+ARTS RESIDENCY "New Modes of Mobility" he is working together with technologists and scientists on the project "Berlin 2037". The first prototype of his multisensory cyber-physical installation that connects a bicycle to a virtual reality headset has already given us a small glimpse into the future of the city. We are very much looking forward to the further steps that will emerge in this collaborative effort!

The residency is hosted by Regional S+T+ARTS Center STATE in friendly collaboration with BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt and it’s RISE Cities program.

As part of the S+T+ARTS RESIDENCY "Flow of Berlin", Johanna Schmeer and Studio Lapatsch|Unger explore the water systems and ecologies of Berlin and Brandenburg together with STATE's Local Expert Group. The valuable insights into the research labs and the in-depth conversations open new perspectives for their project "Bodies of Water". They not only reveal possibilities for unconventional approaches for the planned interactive workshops, but also show exciting connections between scientific and artistic approaches. We look forward to the developments of new synergies between art and new technologies!

Congratulations to Studio Lapatsch|Unger and Johanna Schmeer! The artist collective will take up the Starts Repairing the Present residency "Flow of Berlin“.

How can we create more awareness around water and its regional origins?
The project "Bodies of Water“ is an experience-based participatory artwork where an archive of water samples and data from Berlin-Brandenburg’s water bodies will be combined into a multisensory installation. Through listening, tasting, sensing and perceiving we gain a valuable understanding that enables us to transpose temporarily into the local aquatic environment. Through a process of participatory workshops, Studio Lapatsch|Unger and Johanna Schmeer will explore ways to translate scientific knowledge and data of the local water ecologies into a multi-sensually perceptible experience.

Anja Lapatsch and Annika Unger are Studio Lapatsch|Unger, a design duo based in Berlin. Their research-based work explores material cultures and cultural phenomena revealing layers of knowledge between the past, the present and the future resulting in envisions of future scenarios. Both are teaching as Artistic Associates at the University of the Arts Berlin (UdK).

Johanna Schmeer is a designer and interdisciplinary researcher based in Berlin. She is a professor of design at Folkwang University of the Arts. Her inquiry-based work explores technologically augmented ecologies, industrial flows of matter, and the reframing of the human within its interspecies, geospatial, and technosocial entanglements. She holds a degree in Digital Media from the University of the Arts Berlin (UdK) and a MA and PhD from the Royal College of Art London.

From February on, the Local Expert Group, BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt with its RISE Cities program and STATE will accompany the artists to approach goals of the European Green Deal.

In July we had a whirlwind day at Studio Babelsberg with Golden Globe nominee and Berliner Helena Zengel! Helena will star in Berlin 2037, our VR project with Vincent Productions that is in its final stages of production (!)

The shoot took place in the Volucap Studio where the likes of the Matrix 4 have been filmed. The combination of working with such an experienced and inspiring actor, and the state of the art technology was quite the experience 🪄 Thank you to everyone who made it happen - and Volucap for these 2D photos from the day, as well 📸

Berlin 2037, our upcoming VR project with Vincent Productions, envisions a radical vision of a near-future Berlin - a greener, sustainable city without motor vehicles. Naturally, this vision can best be achieved by listening to what people living in Berlin and similar cities want!

Futures Canvas is an online, interactive tool for collective speculation and envisioning futures together. You can participate through the link below!

We'd love if you could participate in 'Modes of Mobility' 😉 the topic that our co-founder Felix Gaedtke is exploring as part of his residency with S+T+ARTS.

So please, join in and speculate with us! 🚴‍♀️🚴🚴‍♂️

REPAIRING THE PRESENT: OPEN CALL ANNOUNCEMENT

Calling international artists working at the intersection between science, technology and the arts to apply for a 6-month fellowship addressing one of the 21 challenges defined by 12 Regional STARTS Centers and their local networks of experts, business and community leaders.
Repairing the Present was born from the belief that the solutions to the social, economic and environmental issues our world is facing must come from an understanding of the local and regional specificities before they can be translated at a global level. We invite artists to think globally and act locally to repair the present and build the future our world needs.
The fellowships will encourage artists to critique the present, challenge existing practices in different industries, explore beyond current limitations, reimagine sustainable futures, learn from the research field and work closely with experts to bring to the table artistic solutions to issues that affect us all.
Each fellowship will have a budget of 40.000 EUR.
Artists can apply to up to 3 different challenges. Artists applying for more than one challenge are only eligible for one fellowship.
To learn all about the challenges and the open call, go to https://bit.ly/rtpcall

~ ArtScience Monthly #12~

warmly invites you to join us on Tuesday, March 16 as from 7pm CET, for our upcoming online community gathering. Following inspiration talks by artist Anne Duk Hee Jordan and biologist & philosopher Dr. Andreas Weber, we will connect our ideas and intuitions to collectively envision new ways of approaching nature.

Through her art, Anne Duk Hee Jordan opens up doors to a universe where she humorously and romantically creates machines that juxtapose robotic consciousness with organic cyclic decay and life. As a biologist, philosopher and writer, Andreas Weber focuses on a re-evaluation of our understanding of the living. He proposes to view – and treat – all organisms as subjects and hence the biosphere as a meaning-creating and poetic reality. Studio

We're looking forward to interconnecting with you!

Please register to receive the Zoom link:
On Tuesday, June 16th, we're hosting a new edition of the ArtScience Monthly - an interactive series of events that is about sharing perspectives and learning from one another!
