LIVE THE CITY explores how to embed digital art in the urban context and how urban digital art contributes to shaping neighborhoods, networking citizens and creating platforms for visualizing science and technologies. 

In opposition to the commercial use of these urban media, the goal of the project is to establish them as platforms for co-creating and shaping the human futures of our digital cities. What are new emerging forms of participation and digital place making? 

There is an urgency to pose such questions, especially in Bangkok where a massive growth of media infrastructures and permanent digital advertisements are increasingly defining the urban experience. The project addresses a critical view towards the use of media in the context of the city. 

In times of digital communication and smart cities, the communicative potential of the public space is reinterpreted in manifold ways. Urban media environments connect physical space with the digital world and encourages city inhabitants to actively and conjointly reshape the urban space. 

The project is a collaboration between the Goethe-Institut, the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Siam Center and the ESIC Lab of King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi in cooperation with Connecting Cities and is shown silmutanously in three locations in Bangkok: Bangkok Art and Culture Center, Siam Center, and Goethe Institute.

Launch event on June 7 at 2 PM in 5th Floor Auditorium, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, with perspectives on urban media art and talk with artists.
