<nettime-ann> Workshop The Media City

Workshop The Media City

From March 22 - April 3, the Netherlands Media Art Institute and Time Frame will host 'The Media City' workshop, dedicated to the exploration of narrative architecture and social interaction on public spaces. 

The Media City is a specialized project development workshop for urban projections in Amsterdam. From March 22 to April 3, eight top international artists from S. Paulo, Lima, Durban, Douala and the Netherlands will be given the opportunity to explore the possibilities of visual programming interfaces for urban facades and develop their own site-specific concept.

The Media City investigates architecture as narrative and social interaction in public space. It is interested in how these specific languages, spaces of cultural meaning, can be translated into media art projects in which similarities from African and Latin American cities can be found and re-interpreted in Amsterdam.

Architecture plays an important part in the formation of national identities and, hence, the project holds a great potential of yielding artistic examinations in national boundaries, similarities and trans-national visions.

This event includes 3 semi-public lectures. These three evening sessions with artists presentation will try to bring in as much expertise and viewpoints as possible and will foster discussions about the workshop theme among artists, theoreticians, cultural workers and audience. The sessions are interlinked and designed to initiate an ongoing discussion among the participants. The conference language is English.
