What is the re:publica Campus?

Since we have organized #rpREMOTE on 7 May 2020, a free one-day online conference in digital exile accessible to all for the first time in our history, we are now about to launch another prototype this September. Meant as an experimental ground for future projects, re:publica Campus will create a framework where we will work together with various partners to implement new digital, hybrid and analogue formats from 6 September to 4 October 2020.

Where is the #rpCampus located?

The #rpCampus is located in a historic factory building at Ziegrastrasse 1 in Berlin-Neukölln. Check out here to find information on how to get there.

When does the re:publica Campus Programme take place?

September 2020 will be all about #rpCampus: Four themes for the weeks from 6 September to 4 October 2020, each dedicated to one of the main topics of current debates of our time. Every day, 4.15pm-7.30pm, we will present a free digital programme with live-streamed short lectures, panel discussions, interviews and tutorials on our online platform campus.re-publica.com and on YouTube. In digital discussion rooms—or Deep Dives—we will be offering Q&As with participating speakers. Find out more about our weekly topics: "MuseumFutures – Martin Roth Symposium", "Wechsel:Wirkung", "Über:Leben" and "Netzfest".

Parallel to the weekly topics an interactive exhibition will be installed inviting visitors to the site during the entire period (6 September to 4 October 2020) on Sundays to Thursdays, 4pm-8pm. The exhibition’s motto will be "Netz Werke—An exhibition on life on the net" and is part of project Netzfest.

What happens at the exhibition Netz Werke, when and where does it take place?

In "Netz Werke" you will experience how the net impacts our everyday life—sometimes visible, sometimes invisible. You can fathom the interplay between reality and digitality, explore online worlds and dive into the beautiful, the engaged and also the unexpected life online. The doors to a Kinect and AI installation, Augmented Reality objects and much more will open Sundays to Thursdays from 4pm to 8pm. Please bring a face mask. Click here for further information.

Do I need a ticket for my visit to the exhibition "Netz Werke"?

What is “Werkstatt”?

Each week ends with a workshop day on which the digital programme will be expanded by an analogue format.
