S+T+ARTS in the Cities

Interconnected Realities: Art, Technology, and Sustainable Futures for the Cities

As an outcome of the eleven international residencies developed within the framework of the S+T+ARTS in the City residencies programme, a series of exhibitions and accompanying events will be presented throughout the Summer and Autumn of 2024 in six featured cities: Barcelona, Brussels, Linz, Ljubljana, Milan, and Porto.

S+T+ARTS in the Cities – Interconnected Realities explores the convergence of art, technology, and sustainability through the lens of eleven visionary projects. Each residency showcased in this series of exhibitions delves into the intricate relationships between human beings, the environment, and the ever-evolving digital landscape, offering unique perspectives on our collective future.

The artworks presented address topics that relate to the challenges faced by the European regions and society: human and non-human interactions, boundaries between natural and artificial, the exploration of sustainable and natural energy sources, the empowerment of individuals to reclaim agency, and the development of radical economic models for our food and agriculture system.

Thanks to the critical eye of the artists, the works challenge conventional boundaries and invite viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of all living beings, highlighting the intricate dance between art, technology, and human experience in an era of rapid change. S+T+ARTS in the Cities – Interconnected Realities invites visitors to engage with thought-provoking installations that pave the way for a more ecologically conscious and socially impactful future impulsed at regional level all over Europe.
