The interdependence and interconnectedness of all forms of existence were the starting point of the recent For Love of the World Festival at Theater De Veste. At the final wrap-up, we found ourselves in a new paradigm and in need of new tools to foster a more inclusive, ethical, and innovative approach to understanding and experiencing the world.

Join us at the Art & Tech Café, where we will explore the agency and intelligence of non-human entities such as the objects, animals, and ecologies all around us, so that we may discover new perspectives and a more holistic understanding of the planet with empathy and respect for all beings.

Art & Tech Café

In the Art & Tech Café we invite artists who work on the intersection of art and technology to explore pressing social issues by means of their art. Like technology, art can provide us with a fresh pair of eyes through which we can experience reality in new and unexpected ways. And discover things we may not have known before. Join us to explore new paradigms and perspectives!

Art & Tech is brought to you by Studium Generale and Theater de Veste.
