On 29.4.2020 at 3 pm in Mainz (Macao: 10 pm / Mexico: 8 am) we had the international kick-off event on the audio-visual project
CORONA GLOBAL BREAK
with the universities:
German-Jordanian University Amman, Jordan
Escuela Nacional de Artes Cinematográficas, UNAM Mexico City, Mexico
St. Joseph University Macao, China
Universidad Lisboa, Portugal
RUFA, Rome, Italy
University of Mainz, 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 - 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 film project, an installation, a concert etc.
Each participant produces :
1 minute / week HD 25f/s
Form: open, but as continuous as possible
(if spoken word: English subtitles please)
Further information on the project, on participation and to the upload-link please contact

Dr Paulo Ferreira-Lopes
Start date for the recordings is supposed to be 2020 May 1st at noon.
The project has a duration longer than the summer semester 2020.
We are looking forward to a large number of participants!
