Kultur einer Digitalstadt e.V.

Kultur einer Digitalstadt e.V.


»Kultur einer Digitalstadt e.V.« (KeD) is a platform for artistic research, interdisciplinary discussions, and cultural networking in the Digitalstadt Darmstadt. The project addresses creative artists and those interested in culture from Darmstadt, the surrounding region and beyond.

Within the framework of the Artist-in-Science- Residence (AiSR), which will be held for the second time in 2023, three artist residencies will be announced, each in cooperation with one of Darmstadt‘s leading scientific institutes. An important concern of the AiSR is to enable synergies and make them visible through an encounter of the comprehensive scientific and technical potentials within the city with the equally comprehensive and relevant cultural and artistic tradition. The AiSR is aimed at artists of all disciplines.

The six-week studio residency on the Rosenhöhe in Darmstadt is linked to cooperation with renowned Darmstadt Research institutes - the Hessian Center for Artificial Intelligence (hessian.AI), the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC).

Timeline of the residencies:

  • hessian.AI: beginning of May – end of June 2023
  • FAIR/GSI: end of June – beginning of August 2023
  • ESOC: beginning of September – Mid-October 2023

The artists have the opportunity to carry out their projects in close cooperation with the cooperating institutes. The scholarship serves artistic research and development.


The aim of the programme is to establish a sustainable exchange between science and art.

An Expert Talk and an Open Lab (open studio) take place during the residency. Each residency ends with a Final View, with a toast to the resident and their studio opened to the public. At the end of the three residencies, there will be a publication.

The AiSR is a scholarship with compulsory attendance. The three residencies will take place one after the other, sometimes overlapping by a few days.

Studio Information

The scholarship holders have their own studio at the Rosenhöhe and - depending on the possibilities of the cooperating institute - a workplace at the research institution.


The physical centre of KeD is the Atelierhaus Ludwig- Engel-Weg 1 in the Neue Künstlerkolonie Darmstadt. Situated in a park, the ensemble is privileged by its architecture and by its spatial and thematic proximity to the Welterbe Kultur Mathildenhöhe - a major pioneer of modernism. Genius Loci for actors from Darmstadt as well as for national and international experts who approach the questions, potentials and challenges raised by digitalisation from the diverse perspectives of art and culture.
