Agora Digitalis is the Interface Cultures’ meeting point during the 2020 Campus Exhibition. The general idea behind it is to create an informal setting where students, (future) makers and future students can meet and become acquainted with Interface Cultures. Agora Digitalis is a physical and virtual place where everyone should be able to share and express their ideas. It is planned as a place for informal learning and critical debate about developments in the arts, technology and science. This year’s State of Intimacy edition will undoubtedly reflect on our recent online experiences and it might also, in its slipstream, revisit recent techno-utopian ideals.
