Create your City! artistic interventions in urban spaces
The interdisciplinary art project deals with artistic researches on empty spaces and dysfunctional urban areas in in city centers, housing estates and post-industrial spaces.
The participants learn to analyze the meaning of empty and “out-of-order” locations regarding the consequences and changes for infrastructure and the social texture of a city. Developing concepts and creating models create a process of sustainable urban design. In addition to theoretical background information and an introduction to the thematic contexts for fine arts, the students receive basic techniques of photography, painting, videoart and sound composing.
Realized in different cities of the German Rhine-Ruhr area in cooperation with local museums, culture institutes, academies and schools, supported by Sparda-Bank West, art society Raumordnung NPO and North Rhine-Westphalia Culture & School program.
