WEAVING WORLDS – Monday March 20, 2023, 15:00-18:00, CPH:DOX Social Cinema, Kunsthal Charlottenborg
The INTER:ACTIVE SYMPOSIUM is a unique event in which we introduce the cohort of the 2023 CPH:LAB to specially-invited festival guests from across the creative industries.
In a conference-style programme we will examine with them the creative landscape into which their new works are emerging with a series of lightning talks from a number of festival guests.
We are delighted to welcome Sofie Hvitved to open the Symposium as the keynote speaker. She is a Futurist and Head of Media at the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, where she is currently working on the future of the Metaverse and how it will affect our lives, society and businesses, to ask: Who will own the metaverse? Who will be represented? And how do we ensure that it’s shaped for all of us?
Sofie Hvitved will be followed by artists Lauren Moffat, Jakob Kudsk Steensen and Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, who will take us deeper into the convergence of the physical and digital worlds, the rise of the game engine and what digital work gets funded and exhibited, and what ends up suppressed.
Eva Jäger, Curator of Arts Technologies at Serpentine Galleries, will consider how we can build future art ecosystems, while Calum Bowden explores how blockchain and Web 3.0 can be applied to the creative ecology.
We will end with Jake Elwes queering the dataset to confront social bias in AI.
The Symposium is followed by a CPH:LAB Prototype Pop-Up exhibition event from 19:00-22:00 taking place at the Odd Fellow Palace. Both events are open to all accredited guests and ticket holders.
The CPH:LAB and the INTER:ACTIVE SYMPOSIUM are kindly co-funded by the Creative Europe MEDIA programme of the European Union and The Danish Film Institute.
