ArtsformationFall 2020 - current

Artsformation is exploring the intersection between arts, society and technology. We research, create and experiment. The project intends to explore the Arts, as an actor in shaping the transformation of society towards a more sustainable digital future in Europe.

Artsformation works to answer four key questions: 

  • What is the role of the Arts in digital society?
  • How do businesses mobilize the Arts to tackle societal problems related to the digital transformation?
  • How does civil society mobilize the Arts to catalyse social change, foster civic participation, and strengthen the democratic processes endangered by digital transformations?
  • How can the Arts inform and shape digital policy-making?

As part of the research programme, Artsformation proposes different open calls, workshops, residencies and co-creation opportunities for artists and other collectives. Artsformation also engages in the production of Exhibitions, and thus spans over research, innovation and applied artistic practice. You can find reports, open calls and exhibition documentation on Artsformation’s website.

The Artsformation project was kicked of in Autumn 2020 led by the Norwegian Business School (Norway), the Copenhagen Business School (Denmark), LATRA (Greece), KEA European Affairs (Brussels), WAAG (Amsterdam), FACT (UK), Transmediale (Germany), European Alternatives (Italy/France) and Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). 

Catch has been invited into the project by Copenhagen Business School, this has resulted in two joined projects financed by the project and two articles written by Copenhagen Business School about Catch’s practice. 

Furthermore, Majken Overgaard from Catch is a member of the Advisory Board connected to the project. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870726.
