worldwide connected screens | media facades | urban media art environments
Connecting Cities is a European and worldwide expanding network aiming to build up a connected infrastructure of media facades, urban screens and projection sites to circulate artistic and social content. In opposition to the commercial use of these urban media, we establish them as platforms on which citizens can exchange – within the city as much as between cities.
For the coming years the Connecting Cities Network pursues an artistic research programme that combines workshops and conferences with the production of interactive artworks which are presented every year during the Connecting Cities Events.
The curatorial programme has an annual theme:
2013 – Networked City
2015 – Participatory City
2016 – In/Visible City
The Connecting Cities Network is initiated by Susa Pop | Public Art Lab Berlin in cooperation with 23 international partners in 21 cities:
