Digital Discourses

Large parts of our lives are captured in the data trails we leave online. Who tracks them and how are they monetized? Experts discuss data privacy in the digital realm plus concepts of regulation.

Kulturama brings international culture into your living room: house concerts live from Buenos Aires, puppet theatre from the kitchen or live acts from the Berlin club scene. Organisers enter their events and open them to international audiences. Spectators can find dates and support artists with donations.

ARCHlab

Architecture and urbanization characterize the global culture and society of the 21st century like little else. In short video portraits, international architects talk about a building designed and realised by them and retrace how they developed their designs. They keep asking themselves the question: How do we live and work in the future? Our video series ARCHlab shows the answers architects have found to questions like these.

Social Translating

Social Translating

The Merck Social Translating Project is testing a new social practice for literary translation.
Ten translators from Asia are translating a German-language novel into their respective native languages. During the process, they meet in a closed digital forum and work on their translations by interacting with one another and engaging in a close discourse with the author.
