The introduction of intelligent and interconnected systems as well as the blending of the real and the virtual world have brought us to the threshold of a new industrial revolution – the Industry 4.0. The epochal processes of change coming along with this affect the whole of our society. Established lifestyles and values are being tested. New ideas for living and for economic activities in the 21st century are in demand – because the challenges are staggering: Climate change, globalisation, virtualisation, the finality of our resources, demographic developments and the ensuing ecological, economic, and social upheavals transform life on our planet profoundly.




„Before we know what we do,
we have to know what we think.“

Joseph Beuys




It is precisely because we cannot know the future that we have to sharpen our imagination and to develop visions and guiding concepts that point out the perspectives of our actions.
Entrepreneurs conceive products and solutions for the world of tomorrow and contribute to decisions on how people will live and work in the future – and artists create images with which the invisible relationships in our world become visible.
Both are creators in their own way, both are designers of the future.
