Over the course of two months, the interactive work-of-art known as LUNETA will create a real-time connection between the two cities of Berlin and Wroclaw. In walk-in installations set up at central sites in both Berlin and Wroclaw, visitors will be invited to experience the connections and forms of communication in our present, history and future. Visitors to both cities will come into direct contact, i.e. image and sound data will be broadcast using Internet-based streaming technology. The installation creates a unique space for direct audio-visual exchange among the two cities and also offers a wide-ranging accompanying programme of events.
LUNETA 2016 is a project associated with “Wroclaw Berlin – European Neighbours”, a co-initiative of the Berlin-based forum for civic responsibility known as Stiftung Zukunft Berlin and the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016 in cooperation with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Corporation, the German Federal Cultural Foundation, Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH, Mediapool GmbH and Mica Moca e.V..With support from the EU Commission and the LOTTO Foundation Berlin.
