City to City: Human Responsibility

About

In 2020, nine UNESCO Creative Cities of Media Arts decided to create an innovative online platform for artistic collaboration. The aim was to support art and creativity as a major force for sustainable development in these times of uncertainty. Thanks to this initiative, ten artists working in pairs – City to City – have created works responding to human responsibility questions. They sought answers to three critical questions:

  • Does technology have the ability to solve all the problems in the future?
  • Do we need more arts and empathy to use technology in better and more responsible ways?
  • Are we allowed to make decisions on behalf of the planet?

The final works are available in a virtual gallery and presented in Košice during the Art & Tech Days festival.
