City to City: Human Responsibility


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.


Five works of art were created as a result of the project:

  • Reminiscence Path– Beáta Kolbašovská (Košice, Slovakia) and Junichi Oguro (Sapporo, Japan)
  • LIMBO – João Carlos Pinto (Braga, Portugal) and Sarah Degenhardt (Karlsruhe, Germany)
  • Cartography of the Stain – Gerardo Nolasco (Karlsruhe, Germany) and Paris Díaz (Guadalajara, Mexico)
  • Water Mirrors – Daniel Escobar (Calí, Columbia) and Mike Stubbs (York, UK)
  • Margin of Error – Biin Shen (Changsha, China) and Liz Rodda (Austin, USA)
