Discussion

ELA KAGEL | An Open Space discussion on public space, conservation strategies of projects and political capital in Düsseldorf / 1:30 pm - 4 pm. This Open Space is about strategies of self-assertion in a time when public spaces are experiencing a hitherto unknown form of commercialisation. This concerns both established urban infrastructures such as parks, places of local transport, streets and paths, but also informal spaces that are used as urban meeting places, unofficial sports facilities or creative hiding places. In the end, the question is: How much open space does our city actually still offer? »Open space« here stands for »free space«, i.e. places of possibility where capital has not yet taken hold. We want to explore this question using the example of concrete projects, buildings and initiatives in Düsseldorf. In the context of our Open Space, we will learn a lot about places like the Centre for Periphery, the Film Workshop, various garden projects or the Planwerkstatt 378. We will dive into models of self-organisation and co-determination and we will deal with the question of what significance these places have for the common good.
Mit Ute Reeh (Zentrum für Peripherie), Moritz Fiedler (Künstler), Jan Wagner (Filmwerkstatt), Harald Schwenk (Planwerkstatt 378), Ela Kagel (Supermarkt Berlin), Kathrin Fiedler (FFT Düsseldorf).
