ADC Germany and 'Creative Intelligence' – Germany's Creative Festival (21 May – 2 June in Hamburg) deals with the future of people, brands and machines and brings Jonathan Meese and Pussy Riot back on stage

More than 50 international industry leaders and decision makers from the areas of design, digital, art, advertising, business and science are speaking at the ADC congress and open-space stage on 23 and 24 May. They will discuss topics such as 'Creative Intelligence' and the future of people, brands and machines in Hamburg. Equal rights for men and women in the creative industry will certainly also be among them. The key motif came from illustrator and artist Mark GMEHLING c/o VISUALEYES.

“He is a superstar of the international art scene: Jonathan Meese is the world-renowned enfant terrible and sometimes also the world's savior. How so? His "dictatorship of the art" is supposed to save our planet. After a four-year break, Meese is coming back on stage for us for the first time at the ADC Congress stage with a performance entitled "Machine K.U.N.S.T,” says ADC.

Together with Hermann Vaske (Director of "Why are we creative?"), Maria Alyokhina, political activist (Pussy Riot), will be on stage at the ADC Congress on 23 May 23 to speak about the responsibility of creators in politically turbulent times. Masha is one of the founders of PUSSY RIOT and does not mince her words even after being arrested: She is now touring the world with her band "Pussy Riot Theater".

What will the media industry of tomorrow be like in a digitalized world? Hamburg content startup THE DISTRIQT has the answer. A video platform with magazines, talks and reportages, all between 3 to 30 minutes long.

Andreas Schimmelpfennig is jury chairman for 'Communication in Space' for the 2019 ADC competition. In the interview , the Creative Director and CEO of Elastique shares what happens when you give robots human features. And what is decisive for creativity in his opinion.

At the ADC Award Show on the evening of 24 May, Germany's most creative communication will be honored. The ADC Festival 2019 is taking place at Kampnagel. The ADC exhibition will then display the award-winning cases in Hamburg's Museum der Arbeit through 2 June. ROLF SCHEIDER & HUBERT will report from the ADC Festival for GoSee!

featured by GoSee EVENT : The 34th INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF FASHION, PHOTOGRAPHY AND FASHION ACCESSORIES, HYÈRES takes place from 25 thru 29 April, 2019, in southern France, and the exhibitions are on display until 26 May – GoSee !

The 34th edition of the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion accessories, Hyères, will take place between Thursday 25 and Monday 29 April, 2019, at the Villa Noailles. The exhibitions will be open to the public until 26 May, 2019. Jean-Pierre Blanc is both the founder and the director of the festival which will be presided over by Pascale Mussard.

Since 1986, the festival has promoted and supported young international fashion design. Since 1997, a competition has also existed for emerging photographers. And this year, for the third time, a competition will also recognize young fashion accessory designers. The festival is acknowledged as the oldest fashion competition aimed at young professionals. Several prizes are awarded to the competing designers thanks to grants provided by the festival’s partners who commit, together with the festival, to providing long term support. Practical assistance is provided right on stage at the competition as well as over a period of two years in various different areas: financing, production, workmanship, materials, production, legal matters, media, exhibitions, workshops, and residencies. This year again, new partners are providing support for this young generation by joining forces with the arts centre.

The photography jury is presided over this year by Craig McDean. The jury met at the Première Heure studio in Paris on 23 January, 2019, in order to chose the ten finalists of the competition (700 entries received from 50 nationalities, 61 short-listed). The jury is composed of: Craid McDEAN (Photographer, New York, president of the jury), Marc Ascoli (Creative Director, AnOther, Paris), Thomas Bonnouvrier (Manager, Art + Commerce, Paris), Patrice Haddad (Producer, Première Heure Paris), Paris Lees (Journalist, London), Patrick Li (Creative Director, founder of Li Inc., New York), Guinevere Van Seenus (Model, New York), Masha Vasyukova (FILMMAKER, Paris), Eva O’Leary (Grand Prix of Photography Jury 2018, New York).

The jury has chosen ten young photographers of seven nationalities. Their photographs will be presented in two collective exhibitions in the villa Noailles and in the Tour des Templiers, open until 26 May, 2019. The ten photographers will be commissioned to shoot two new series as part of the competition: for the Still Life Award using jewelry accessories loaned by the partners of the festival, and for the American Vintage Photography Award using the fashion collections of the brands. The finalists of the 2019 photography competition are:

Federico Berardi Switzerland - Italy
