SPACE The Congress ARCHITECTURE NOW! SPACE will focus on the interaction of art, culture, technology and economy in the conception and realization of architectonic and urban planning projects. Within this interdisciplinary framework, ARCHITECTURE NOW! SPACE will deal with media-specific possibilities of conception, documentation and mediation of contemporary spatial structures. ARCHITECTURE NOW! SPACE will present and discuss landmark examples of application and new trends in visual and interactive development, analysis and representation of architectonic and urban spaces. Architects, producers, artists, representatives from television stations and architecture journals, architecture critics and media experts will discuss the roles of media-aided spatial analysis and present new designs and projects. In the special program section INSPIRING SPACES exemplary documentations of ground-breaking spatial concepts will be shown: from Frank Lloyd-Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Archigram, to Rem Koolhaas, Jean Nouvel, Greg Lynn, Winy Maas and Toyo Ito. METROPOLIZED Spaces under Pressure - Bodies in Excess With the large film retrospective METROPOLIZED the (mediatized) network of the city will be reconstructed for the first time from the perspective of an urban individual in an over-stimulated state. The film and video program will show how contemporary film-makers design "portraits" of the body and its current disorders. These disorders in the relationship between the body and surrounding territories, these confusions between bodies, subjects, urban spaces and their concrete as well as represented spatial orders, lead to a general state of confusion between the body, space, time and visual surfaces. The retrospective explores the tense interrelation between the city and the body, and lays out diverse (visual) paths through a seemingly, increasingly hypertrophic urbanism. METROPOLIZED. Spaces under Pressure - Bodies in Excess is a project with the Festival dei Popoli, Florence, and the European Media Art Festival, OsnabrÂ½ck, within the scope of the European Coordination of Film Festivals (ECFF). INSTALLATIONS A number of unusual venues scattered all over the city will be taken as settings for "delocated screenings" and "spread installations": temporary, unexpected, but above all energetic, situational and interventionist. With installations from the field of media, temporary encroachments and interventions within the city prove to be catalysts for the reanimation of urban space - topical and experimental contributions to applied urbanity.
