    Surya Mattu is a data scientist who is well aware how technologies can unlock secrets. We're looking forward to his talk on our #rp18-stage! Auf der re:publica 18 gibt er uns auf Bühne 1 Einblick in seine Gedanken und Datensätze zu jenen Technologien, die in den Arbeitswelten der Zukunft weiter an Bedeutung gewinnen werden.

    Our next #rp18 speaker, Morehshin Allahyari, works as a curator and media artist in San Francisco - located close to the dark, pulsating heart of Silicon Valley. Allahyari pushes boundaries. Professionally and personally, she oscillates between the Near East and the “West.”


  • Health in times of interconnectedness in a fascinatingly wide spectrum: “re:health” deals with the various aspects of how digitisation leaves its marks on the realms of (quantified) health and health services, and the opportunities and risks that these developments have for people and their bodie

  • “The working worlds of the future” is the topic for the Science Year 2018.

  • Diversity and inclusion are fundamental elements of our value set. We’ve already achieved a lot, but there’s still so much more to do. We asked female techmakers, digital pioneers and coders out there: Is it time for us to enlarge the “Fe:male Digital Footprint”?

  • Despite the rapid pace of digital and technological progress the world is still facing major challenges at the beginning of the 21th century.

  • Publishing on the web can unfortunately mean stumbling onto thin ice, legally speaking. Copyright law, cease and desist, surreptitious advertising – those are just some of the keywords and stumbling blocks.

  • Back to the blogs! Save the open education web! In 2018, the call for “digitised and digital education” is a widespread consensus in almost all professional areas.

  • Music and the digital sphere are closely interconnected. But our #rp18 Music topic isn’t just about a national and international exchange, the promotion of new formats or the continued development of the scene at the intersection of sound and technology.

  • POP is our uber-motto this year. Our new website design in green-screen-green already alludes to the direction we’re headed – even despite the inherent blank space: Squeaky clean, Seventeen cut-out popstar culture might come to mind.

  • The internet began with the decentralisation of communication – we gained more power over the kind of information we had at our disposal and wanted to consume. Are we currently experiencing a new freedom through decentralised financial flows?

  • Blockchain is a comparatively young technology, a “new kid on the block”: Since 2009, the development of Blockchain-related applications (“Smart Contracts”) have made decentralised transactions possible through the use of cryptographic functions such as Trusted Computing. Say what?

  • Smart cities promise great things through urban digitisation: real-time responses to logistical challenges that stem from ever-expanding urban areas; benefits for the education and health system; boosts in political participation; advances for the sharing economy.

  • As creators of future digital society, teens and kids are more than welcome at re:publica! Here’s to another year of crafting, playing, coding, and puzzling. We’re excited to meet all young hackers, net activists, snapchatters, and YouTube junkies!

  • On day two of re:publica, stage 9 will dedicate itself to virtual worlds. The concept of complete immersion into artificial worlds is not a new one. Texts, films, video games, and performance pieces all aim to engulf their audience. VR, on the other hand, is still struggling to mature.
