Art and design can and does affect society. It puts matters in perspective, reflects, initiates changes, but also comes up with innovative, practical solutions for real problems. In three sessions artists, designers, policy makers, managers, cultural entrepreneurs and researchers will discuss the impact of art on a rapidly changing world.

Interrupting the city

The first dialogue is centralised around the theme set by the new book Interrupting the city edited by Bax, Gielen en Ieven. The dialogue will also form the background for the launch of this book.

The dialogue is split up in two blocks, both presenting the more abstract view/context and the practical view. The first dialogue will focus on the relations between artistic practices and the public space, around the question who makes the city? How can architecture and design change the urban environment, the society we live in. We would like to present your view as a key note speech and pairing this with the case also from Berlin brought forward by Anke Wetzel of Eckwerk. This will be followed by a panel discussion, including the audience as well. In this panel Bram Ieven will also take part as one of the co-editors of the book.

The second block will also discuss the relation between artistic practices and public spaces however starting more from the performer/artistic perspective. Pascal Gielen will be asked to talk about his notion of “The Common city” in the second half of the dialogue. Pairing with his speech we will have two individual artists/performers, Sara Vanhee and Barbara Visser. This block will also being followed with a panel discussion. The members of this panel are not yet confirmed.
