URBAN SCREENS 2005 is an international conference
ranging from critical theory to project experiences by
researchers and practitioners in the field of art,
architecture, urban studies and digital media. The
focus is on understanding how the growing
infrastructure of large digital displays influences
the visual sphere of our public spaces. How can the
commercial use of these screens be broadened and
culturally curated? How can urban screens contribute
to a lively urban society, and involve the audience
interactively? Urban Screens 2005, 23 / 24 September
2005, TPG Building / Stedelijk Museum CS, 11th floor,
Amsterdam.
