• In the City track we are taking a look at the impact digitalization has on cities. What does the increasing interconnectedness of urban space mean for the inhabitants of a city?

  • Digital technologies are changing our every day culture in a multitude of ways. We are living in the middle of the post-digital age. The Internet is omnipresent – particularly in the arts and in culture.

  • How do digital technologies change the way we learn, teach, research and share knowledge? How are scientific fields and research topics evolving?

  • The crisis of the public sphere (and objectivity?), which has been evident for some time now, and the open hostility towards “mainstream media" will be part of our focus, as will the success stories from (investigative) journalism, great moments in international cooperation and collaborative fram

  • Everything that makes the soul fly and the heartbeat faster - everything that makes us and life more beautiful is discussed in the track "Lifestyles". How does digitalisation change us and our way of travelling, dating and sports? How do we define happiness in the digital age?

  • Reflections on the change of societies and political dynamics due to digitization are at the core of the re:publica programme. We are interested in shifting power balances, in societal change and civic digital action.

  • Protocols serve to regulate and control processes - in advance, presently or retrospectively. The track "UN\FOLLOW Protocol" questions their structures, interfaces and scope for action with regard to music culture, the music industry and cultural policy.

  • The upcoming test, the nearing exam, the homework due tomorrow, the presentation for the day after, the streak in the vocab app, the next module in the online course, new messages in the study group on WhatsApp, early English lessons, lifelong learning, we all have to learn how to code, why not l

  • Common! What are we waiting for? The facts are plain. The goal has been set. Solutions discussed and packaged as declarations of intent.

  • With the introduction of digital sampling, virtual fashion and the cloud, a huge hum of data is meanwhile whirring through the air. New technologies such as visualisation software, 3D body scanning and digital twins are taking the industry to a new level.

  • The Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB) is presenting the seventh MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB) in cooperation with Medienanstalt Berlin-Brandenburg (mabb) and re:publica on behalf of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg. Participants can attend both events with one ticket.
