as part of Peer to Peer

01.09. – 02.09.2023

Nature and technology are often considered to be opposites. Their actual relationship turns out to be much more complex. Together with, we inaugurate the Peer to Peer event series. The entanglements between landscape and technology, urban planning and nature, the effects of digitisation and the relations between the human and other species will be negotiated in performances, installations, workshops, and talks. The series will move on afterwards, providing insight into North Rhine-Westphalia’s diverse media art landscape in Cologne, Havixbeck near Münster, and Essen.

Re-Imagining Public Life – Revisited

Talk Talks & Workshops Social/Urban Movements

The Re-Imagining Public Life project artistically examines and researches current transformations of the city and the public. The Kö-Bogen II area in the city centre of Düsseldorf became the starting point for a contention with metropolitan design and the narratives surrounding it. In a conversation, the project participants discuss the undertaken interventions, research and experiments: how can we behave in an urban space that has become an image without becoming part of the staging ourselves? What artistic means can we use to intervene and how can counter-images be produced?
