THINKING METROPOLIS: The City as Stage and the Stage as City
In June 2008, the Metropolis Laboratory 2008 opened, continuing the series of Thinking Metropolis seminars with investigations into aspects of the city as a place of sensorial experience, memory, dreams and desire as well as a look into the city as a place where cultural regeneration, cultural profiling and city marketing are also topical issues.
For three days, the Thinking Metropolis seminars were open to professionals working with the city – as artists, as architects, as managers, as developers, as students, as local government officers or councillors, as researchers and theorists. Here we invite to share experiences, views and projects. More than 60 international experts lead the plenary and break out sessions during these three days.
It were three highly intense and inspirational days, each day with two plenary sessions, with six speakers in total. Each plenary was followed by three breakout sessions with specific themes. After dinner there was a chance to see films on the main screen, interact live with new media, while the inspiration grew through informal discussions. Later, DJ’s take over in the lounge and deckchair-area of MS Halfmachine.
Each of the three Thinking Metropolis seminars had lead themes, as entrances to the exchange of knowledge and pratice:
