«Design Realities – Future Technologies» is the theme of the current edition of the interdisciplinary lecture series «Kein Kino». The lecture takes place event-related physically in the Toni Kino or virtually and addresses an interdisciplinary audience. The series' focus is the discussion of projects at the intersection of design – arts – technology. The guests share their design processes and theoretical foundation on a project-by-project basis and invite to an open discussion. The lecture series deals with pressing topics from game design, video art, social media, immersive arts, dance, theatre and composition for film and new media. The goal is to examine trends critically and identify productive collaborations between disciplines. The series is intended as an invitation to exchange knowledge and to provide impulses for cross-disciplinary projects. Internationally renowned speakers such as Galit Ariel (technology futurist), Jamal Nxedlana (Co-Founder Bubblegum Club, Art Director), Ellie Land (Animation Director), Alexander Giesche (Director Schauspielhaus Zürich), Yasaman Sheri (Designer Synthetic Ecologies Lab, Serpentine Galleries), Studio Eidola (Interdisciplinary Research & Design Studio), Onat Hekimoglu (Game Designer & Transmedia Storyteller), David O’Reilly (Game Designer), Yuvviki Dioh (Agent for Diversity, Schauspielhaus Zürich), Romy Strasser (New Assembly), Mara Danz (Fashion Designer), Magda Drozd (Performance Artist), Andrea Anner & Thibault Brêvet (AATB), Flurina Rothenberger (Nice Magazine) u.v.a..
