A reminder that our Spring Plenum will take place on May 5, 2020. We invite you to join us on Zoom from 6-8pm and look forward to seeing you, at least in digital space! You will find the Meeting-ID and password bove.

In these troubled times, we hope to provide you with information, to hear your questions, and to exchange ideas with you. For this reason, for the beginning of the plenum we have invited a number of short contributions:

Julian Kamphausen (Hauptsache Frei Festival for Performing Arts): Short talk on digital presentation forms for the arts
