From 2020 to 2023, the scientific and artistic collaboration Driving the Human becomes a catalyst for experimentation, shaping sustainable, and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. Driving the Human develops and produces seven tangible prototypes responding to complex contemporary scenarios, relying on an expanded expert and knowledge network. The project is jointly led by four partner institutions – acatech, National Academy of Science and Engineering; the mentorship platform Forecast; the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design; and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe – who work to enrich the various developments and outcomes of the initiative.

The Driving the Human Opening Festival from November 20 - 22, 2020 will showcase and critically engage with the urgencies of our time. The festival will publicly discuss and condense questions and visions for shaping a sustainable and collective future by combining science, technology, and art.

Hosted by ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, and the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe, the festival invites scholars, artists, designers, and other multidisciplinary participants to launch a debate on the themes currently defining our existence – from the human to non-human, from existence to co-existence, from digital to analogue. As a catalyst for experimentation, the festival will formulate the questions that will orient the next phase of the Driving the Human investigation.
