Prater Digital is an attempt to make art and interaction a new experience on the Internet and to make a cultural site rich in history accessible on an equal level in digital space.

In an initial phase in December 2020, artists, experts and the public were involved in researching which digital cultural techniques are suitable and need to be learned in order for visual and performing arts to function well online. New approaches to art in the digital space were created and an exemplary, data-secure and ethically sound digital infrastructure was built. This knowledge is made available in exchange formats and in our Learnings.

Various modular spaces have been designed in which meetings, assemblies, exhibitions, performances and shows can take place. The Prater’s rooms are open to artists and projects in the field of cultural education and to all interested parties.

Here you can find videos of past events. People interested in using Mozilla Hubs can find answers to many questions in these FAQ’s.

Prater Digital Foyer

The Digital Foyer is the first room that all visitors of the Prater Digital enter. It is a room in which visitors are welcomed and can orientate themselves. From here they then enter the performance room or the gallery room. On the walls and on the tables, the programmer and artist Berrak Nil Boya has collected motifs from the Prater’s diverse history. The room is intended to reflect the concrete cultural venue of the Prater and it should also invite non-digital-affine people to exchange ideas, as workshops, readings and discussion events will also take place here.

Prater Digital is a project of the Department of Art and Culture oft he District Authority of Pankow. It was developed and realized in collaboration with the curator Julian Kamphausen and the advisory board on the future of Prater Berlin with Berrak Nil Boya, Gloria Schulz in cooperation with Mark Coniglio (Troikatronix) and the digital.DTHG, with the support of the course “Spiel && Objekt” of the Hochschule für Schauspielkunst Ernst Busch, Ricardo Gehn (OutoftheBox), Performersion, as well as representatives of numerous cultural institutions.
