My first lockdown

An audio-visual project with partner-universities on April 29th 2020 at 3 pm in Mainz (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's 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 in spring of 2020 - 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 a film project, an installation, a concert etc.
Form: collaborative open, but as continuous as possible. ​Further information on the project, on participation and to the upload-link please contact:

Start date for the recordings was May 1st 2020 at noon.
The project will last longer than the summer 2020. Feel free to participate at any moment!  Teaching unit Time-based Media and the Institute for Media Design - img of the Mainz University of Applied Sciences, Germany.
