As a follow up of the workshop Reclaim the Screens! during transmediale.10 and based on the Media Facades Festivals Berlin 2008 and Europe 2010 we explore how artists, curators and creative people can utilise the urban screens infrastructure as social vision panels. What is the communicative, intercultural potential of public screens? Which socio-aesthetic forms of interaction enable a dialogue between different local scenes, how can we engage the public in the creative process to contribute to local community building?

With this workshop, as a follow up of the workshop Reclaim the Screens! during transmediale.10, we want to explore how artists and creative people can utilise the existing urban screens infrastructure as their social vision panels. What is the communicative and intercultural potential of media facades and urban screens? Which socio-aesthetic forms of interaction can make media facades an interface between the urban space and the Internet to enable a dialogue between different local scenes? How can we engage the public in the creative process to contribute to local community building? Based on the experiences of the Media Facades Festivals Berlin 2008 and Europe 2010 we want to explore theses questions together with Artists, Media Designer  and Curators. 

 

Organised by Susa Pop, Public Art Lab & Mirjam Struppek, Interactionfield, and the Partnerinstitutions of the Media Fassaden Festival Europe 2010.
