Opening Festival Participants announced 

The participants of the Driving the Human Opening Festival have been announced. Involving scholars, artists, designers, and other multidisciplinary participants, the event will propose a variety of formats in a specially designed digital broadcast taking place over the course of three days. 

Taking place in Karlsruhe and broadcast digitally across the globe, the festival launches 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 formulates the questions that will orient the next phase of the Driving the Human investigation.
