CONNECTING CITIES: INVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities 2015. Call For Proposals

Connecting Cities is a network of worldwide cultural institutions. The aim is to foster the circulation of artistic and cultural contents throughout European and worldwide urban screens and media facades.

With the curatorial theme of INVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities 2015 we want to develop an awareness on the changes which are hardly visible to the eyes and are underlying our nowadays cities. Our today's modern cities are hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of our everyday lives. We call for artistic scenarios to visualise invisible, embedded 'smart' urban infrastructures and analyse their impact on the technological transformation of our society in a broad and public discourse.

Submit your project proposal until 31 October, 2014, 23:59h CET

imagen Pedro Diezma

The uses of the Internet are no longer limited to computers and mobile devices; it is now usual to find TV sets, watches, fridges or cars that have an Internet connection.


In this context, what if the role of the digital analyst? What professional challenges must he/she face in the short run? How do we deal with the amount of data available and be able to gather valuable information? These questions and many others will be analyzed and debated at this event promoted by Madrid Geek Girls.
