On behalf of the city of Dresden and its institutions for culture, research as well as historical archiving we were commissioned to realize one of 25 exhibits for the application Capital of Culture 2025. The theme of the exhibit included the presentation of future technological possibilities in times of advancing digitalization. For this purpose, we decided on a hologram projection with control via a tablet. On the tablet, visitors can find information about the topics the respective institutions are dealing with. Parallel to this, the corresponding 3D projection is displayed in the stele.
The platform E-Culture, Digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence deals with the possibilities as well as the dangers of digitization in culture, science, politics and administration. Dresden’s cultural policy is to support the goal of developing a common digital infrastructure of the cultural institutions and to improve the network of cultural and scientific institutions, to simplify the generation and transfer of knowledge. However, questions about data protection and digital sovereignty should not be left out. The platform therefore wants to start with content and technological expertise, but also with critical discussions.
The exhibition is visitable from 11th October 2019 to 12th of December and it’s placed in Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden.
