> URBAN ECOLOGIES
> Thursday 27 March 2003
> Liverpool Biennial  {AT}  FACT
> 10.00-17.00
>
>
> Admission free but places are limited.
> How do cities juggle the requirement for managerial accountability and the
> creation of conditions that allow for the emergence of imaginative
> self-organisation? Can we bring 'trash', 'waste', and the discarded or
> repressed back into play as creative beginnings?
>
> This one-day seminar explores the role contemporary art and artists may
play
> in the remediation of an 'urban ecology'. Six speakers exchange views and
> experiences of art working in urban spaces and the resultant contribution
to
> a sense of community and citizenship.
>
> Dynamic cities are no longer understood as coherent unities, but are
> increasingly interpreted as complex systems constituted by the mutually
> determining interactions of different communities and processes. We can
> understand this matrix as an urban ecology on three levels; the personal,
> the social and the environmental. Contemporary art plays a significant
role
> in this ordering where it reaches outside established policies and
> perspectives asking questions and inspiring reflections. Art festivals
'are
> seen as vital in drawing communities together, in improving the
environment
> and boosting the economy' (FT, 01/06/2002, p.1)
>
> Speakers:
> Azra Aksamija (Princeton), Lourdes Fernandez (Manifesta 5, Donastia - San
> Sebastian), Lily van Ginneken/ Jan Wijle (Stroom, The Hague), Jonathan
> Harris (Chair, Liverpool). Kyong Park (International Center for Urban
> ecology, Detroit), Christoph Schaefer / Park Fiction (Hamburg).
