Performative Reading and Discussion with Barbara Holub, and Social Design Klasse HFBK (EN)
Drawing from case studies and concepts from Hamburg and beyond, we want to look at the expanded field of urban curating and its correlations with performing arts, critical spatial practice, urban practice, organisational system thinking, community-based planning, cultural planning, among others. At these intersections of eco-social urban practices, strategic planning and urban renewal lies a radical, relational, queer-feminist approach to repairing and maintaining our cities. We wish to ask: how can urban curating serve to pull these practices together despite their differences, and highlight their shared values for civic political engagement in a way that has a real impact on politics in the city?
This gathering is curated as an internal working session reflecting PARKS and the social design class network and processes. Most of the gathering is programmed in small-scale to intimate conversational formats and working sessions. We will move from ritual to hologram, to workshop, to assembly. The program is deliberately slow and small, focusing on encounters and knowledge exchange at an informal pace. The gathering will shift between German and English. See full program details attached.
