Jeanne Charlotte Vogt – arts & technology, digital culture and performing arts

Jeanne Charlotte Vogt



I am an independent curator and cultural producer. My personal website is not always up to date as I am in charge for a series of programs and platforms that have to be maintained – and, well, that often means my home remains a little messy. Please reach out if you have any questions. Here is a brief info on what I do and with whom:

I am the artistic director of NODE e.V. and co-director of the international festival NODE Forum for Digital Arts in Frankfurt. I am working and researching at the intersection between the arts and technology and my projects bring together people from different backgrounds, to initiate new alliances and to share knowledge between humans and fields of practice.

Currently I am developing Digitale Welten – a program that combines cultural, political and IT education – and work for Künstlerhaus Mousonturm dramaturgy as an artistic project manager of METAhub Frankfurt working with Ariel Efraim Ashbel and friends as well as Rimini Protokoll. I am also part of the new team running the Hamburg festival for performing arts Hauptsache Frei. I enjoy to occasionally contribute to the arts&culture track of chaos communication congress as part of the curatorial team.

I am working as a dramaturg and producer with theater makers and performance artists, currently on the three year program [in]operabilities together with Benjamin van Bebber, Leo Hofmann and Franziska Henschel.

Recent and Current Projects

Creative Technologies Meetup 2022-2023

The Creative Technologies Meetup was launched as a series of events in 2015 by me and Alexandra Waligorski together with Fab Lab Fabulous St. Pauli. We were primarily interested in finding like-minded people and potential accomplices in Hamburg and bringing them into contact with each other: Artists, designers, programmers and other people who are interested in the artistic and critical use of technology. At least two people present their work in a relaxed atmosphere, food and drinks provide the basis for staying and exchanging.

In 2022, the event series continued to run in collaboration with project by Kampnagel and the Deichtorhallen and offers the chance for interested people and colleagues to exchange ideas with resident artists and other Hamburg artists, to gain insight into the process and to develop ideas together.

Next Date

05.04.2023, 19:00 • Meetup #5 / Fab Lab Fabulous St. Pauli

The first Meetup of this year is also the kick-off of the new THEHOST.IS Season. Resident artists Iyo Bisseck and Sarah Diedro Jordão will present their team and their interdisciplinary project „Dreaming Beyond AI„. As a platform, they bring together artists, researchers, activists, and policymakers to develop new narratives and visions around AI technologies and discuss the injustices, biases, and discrimination that shape algorithmic decision-making processes. 

Hamburg-based filmmaker Sandra Trostel, composer Thies Mynther and animation artist Jon Frickey present the „shortest musical in the world,“ their animated film „Zoopticon.“ In a post-apocalyptic future, we have left the fate of our cultural heritage in the hands of the intelligent and friendly spaceship „Zoopticon“. Along for the ride, however, are five science fiction creatures who, despite help from the spaceship, fight out the same conflicts and make the same bad decisions as the humans who created them.

After the project presentations there will again be soup, drinks and time for exchange.


[in]operabilities is an artistic research project in contemporary music theater and links the art form of opera with the question of its accessibility. In the canon and cosmos of opera, artists and interdisciplinary researchers search for forms of multisensory music-making and encounter – for collective and individual „opera-abilities“.

[in]operabilities was initiated in 2021 by Benjamin van Bebber, Leo Hofmann, Franziska Henschel and Jeanne Charlotte Vogt, and is supported by the Fonds Darstellende Künste (Performing Arts Fund) with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media and by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, Department for Culture and the Media.

[in]operabilities #1: A Singthing

25.–28.11.2022 • Kampnagel Hamburg
11.–12.03.2022 • Radialsystem V Berlin
24.–25.11.2022 • Walcheturm, Zürich, CH
08.–09.12.2022 • Gare du Nord Basel, CH

For A SINGTHING, we worked together with the percussionist Sabrina Ma, the actress Athena Lange and the visual artist Ladislav Zajac, to develop a multi-sensual aria performance evening. With dramatic faces and pulsating lights, with big gestures and booming subwoofers, we explore possibilities of musical communication and the creation of operesk emotion. More information here:

Digital Lab #2 – Online Hack Space

Digital Lab #2 is the second edition of a research project by Hebbel am Ufer / HAU4, Berlin. The research process starts with an inspirational „Online Hack Space“ for five resident artistic collectives from March 30th – April 2nd. I was invited to curate and design a program supporting the collectives to start their work on „artistic participatory strategies for digital and hybrid spaces“.

Together with a group of international artists and researchers who have been working at the intersection of digital arts and performance, we discussed the sustainability of our digital performance practice on two levels: What kinds of encounters, approaches, interaction and participation do virtual and hybrid spaces allow? And how can we implement projects in a socially and ecologically responsible way? Together, we aim to determine which themes, forms and ways of working are important for independent contemporary, digital performance arts, beyond the pandemic and in the long term.

During the Online Hack Space, we will receive input on digital interactive artistic practice, exchange ideas with each other and, in various workshops, further develop the ideas the collectives had proposed in their applications. At the end of the five-day event, the participants present their concepts, after which a jury will select two teams for a subsequent residency.

NODE20 Forum for Digital Arts – Second Nature

From October 2 – 8, 2020, NODE Forum for Digital Arts brought together artists, designers, researchers, and technologists to critically reflect on emergent technologies and creative practices in times of ecological crisis in a dynamic hybrid format.

The 6th edition of the Frankfurt based festival encouraged a community of digital creators to examine and rethink their professional and personal impact: How do we challenge the industry’s status quo and enable others to do the same? A first step is the critical examination of the go-to tools and processes that have become our ‘second nature’. From imagination to implementation—if collapse is to be averted, rewriting our Second Nature will be key.

GreenHouse NAXOS

In collaboration with studioNAXOS, we have designed a 3D festival venue for NODE20 – a platform for gathering, for meetups, workshops, installations and performances. GreenHouse NAXOS is the open virtual playground, exhibition and performance space and a space to reflect on cultural practices in times of the ecological crisis.

Digitale Welten

Together with youth work organization of the city of Frankfurt Main, I developed Digitale Welten, a teens media arts festival in Frankfurt. The forth edition has been running in October 2021. By now, Digitale Welten has become a program including many different projects and formats teaching code and technology, it’s socio-political implications by artistic means.
