Studio Quantum is an international events and artist-in-residence programme from the Goethe-Institut, exploring emerging quantum technologies through the lens of art. Studio Quantum is exploring important cultural, ethical and ecological questions around the impact of quantum technologies. The project consists of three key strands: residencies, events and a project showcase.
The programme and accompanying event series will explore the impact of quantum computing on sustainability and climate change, the relationship between quantum technologies and artificial intelligence, as well as data security and data encryption.
