The main challenge of the new digitality is to resist the transhuman capitalist dream of the digital as utopia so as to configure a hybrid problematic via metastable and interdependent approaches to digital media. The hybrid times we are now living in have made us utterly aware of our interdependence—the state of being mutually reliant upon one another—as a form of symbiosis to take into account. Merging the digital/online world with the analog/presential world also has to relate and connect with the multiple layers of reality involved, from technopolitical infrastructures to ecosocial impact. The Ars Electronica Garden Barcelona will consist of five different phases: 1) an open call for art, science and technology grants; 2) artists’residencies in scientific and technological research centers; 3) the implementation of research-production processes in visual arts and performing arts production centers; 4) the public exhibition and diffusion of artistic research results and, finally, 5) the sharing of results, methods and processes involved in the collaboration through a series of open talks and roundtable discussions.

With works by Estampa, Andy Gracie, Óscar Martín, Esther Rodríguez-Barbero, Anaisa Franco, Stefan Tiefengraber, Solimán López, Mohsen Hazrati and Remix El Barrio among others, and with the participation of innovation platforms such as IMMENSIVA and Phygital Next.
