Initiated by the Department of Design and the Immersive Arts Space of the Zurich University of the Arts, «REFRESH #5» took place from November 9th to November 12th, 2023. Under the title «New Realities: Design – Arts – Technology», REFRESH #5 (keynotes, masterclasses, lab insights, exhibition) brought together designers, artists, researchers and experts from Switzerland and abroad to anticipate possible futures for the Design and the Arts. The fith edition of the interdisciplinary festival REFRESH was devoted primarily to the topics «Immersive Journalism», «Design Realities», «Worldbuilding», «Future Technologies» and «Design Ecologies».
