The Kick-off Event:

On 29.4.2020 at 3 pm in Mainz MEZ (Macao: 10 pm / Mexico: 8 am) we had the international kick-off event on the audio-visual project with the participating universities:

  • Escuela Nacional de Artes Cinematográficas, UNAM Mexico City, Mexico 
  • St. Joseph University Macao, China
  • Universidad Lisboa, Portugal
  • RUFA, Rome, Italy German-Jordanian University Amman, Jordan
  • Mainz University of Applied Sciences, Time Based Media

More than 30 lecturers and students from the partner universities responded to the call, which was founded by the Mainz-based Prof. Dr. Ferreira-Lopes, Prof. Hartmut Jahn and Jeremias Witteler. We are all more or less in a worldwide lockdown. This is what connects us – from self-isolation to forced isolation in Lisbon, Amman, Mexico City, Mainz, Rome, Macao and elsewhere.

From these personal audio-visual observations we want to open a shared window on our current conditions, – out of the virtual space – into the possibilities of film project, an installation, a concert.
