Do you want to explore new possibilities of performance through digital technologies? Join us for this experimental workshop and open exchange.

The workshop is open to students, researchers and alumni of all departments at ZHdK & members of the InnovationLab. Please send us your contact information and affiliation/connection to conference.ipf@zhdk.ch by 22 May to participate in the workshop (limited number of places available).
