Fri Dec 10, 2021, 8:30 am - 10:00 am
All times are given in Central European Summer Time (CEST / UTC +2).

Ars Electronica Futurelab director Hideaki Ogawa teaches an online course entitled “Artistic Journalism” at Keio University SFC. This experimental series of classes discusses artistic journalism through a unique guided tour and dialogue in the Ars Electronica Center. Since 2020, we are faced with COVID-19 and the various social changes cascading from it. How will we face these dramatic changes, how will we have our own compass, and how will we live in the future? In this course, we envision artistic journalism as a new media, place, and system for broadly experiencing and discussing the future. Through the activities of Ars Electronica Center, based in Linz, Austria, we will create a dialogue with new knowledge that cannot be conveyed by books, newspapers and online media alone, and discuss how to apply this dialogue to future life and society.

In the final lecture, Hideaki Ogawa and Christoph Kremer, Managing Director of the Ars Electronica Center, will introduce the new exhibition, “There Is No Planet B.” How can we deal with climate change and other serious problems facing the planet we live on? He will be joined by Nicolas Naveau of Ars Electronica Futurelab for a live session to consider what it will take to take action on these profound issues.
