Mirevi Art and Culture Talks
Let's be honest: Corona has a firm grip on us, on research, development, but also on our art and cultural productions. With conferences, productions and festivals moving into the virtual, we are eagerly seeking ways to enter into deeper exchange, and to find new forms of interactions that also embrace the needs of arts and culture. The questions that arise not only from social distance but also from digitalization, the challenge of transferring the body, the art scene and commemorative culture into the digital, are discussed in the following contributions, which have all been created in our virtual 3D studio.

Digital Foyer
The Deutsche Oper am Rhein and the FFT Düsseldorf were guests at the MIREVI lab of the HSD. With both cultural partners we develop new digital concepts and fundamentals of collaboration. As part of the city’s public life, our goal is to carry on joint research focusing on digital transformation and innovative switching technology. The digital foyer is designed to serve as an interface between house and visitors as well as between institution and city. A digital room that extends the theatre and the opera. A gathering place. A window to the city.

Innovation Suitcase
Since the number of research projects we have worked on in the past and are currently working on is ever-growing, we want to develop a versatile and high-quality presentation tool based on new technologies. The Innovation Suitcase will be especially useful due to its mobility that enables us to present our projects everywhere, for instance at exhibitions. Another key feature will be the various kinds of media available to do the several projects justice.
