[Nettime-nl] Legal Space / Public Space, conference, Brussels

Etablissement d’en Face Projects, Brussels & the Piet Zwart Institute,


Legal Space / Public Space two conference days on March 21+23, 2003

Legal Space / Public Space investigates the rules and regulations
governing the public domain and explores strategies for use and
intervention. The project looks at artistic and architectural practices
that make use of the holes and gaps in the legal system to open up a
space of possibility beyond the determining regulations and
restrictions; and at interventionist which focus on the excessiveness of
planning and regulation of public spaces resulting in their
dysfunctionality as a ‘public’ sphere. Legal Space/Public Space is
developed from a multi-disciplinary perspective to raise questions about
the public domain, citizenship, civil disobedience and freedom. The
conferences are part of an ongoing research project.
