Friction Atlas x Meeting Grounds Public Panel Discussion
17.00, Thursday 1 October 2020
With guest speakers: Giuditta Vedrame and Paolo Patelli (Friction Atlas), Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos (Westminster Law & Theory Lab, London), Santiago Cirugeda (Recetas Urbanas, Servilla) and Heleen de Hoon (MA Performing Public Space, Fontys).
In many countries around the world, public places, sites of living and work have been marked by new rules and regulations. Coloured circles, lines and arrows show us how to move, the path to follow, where and how to stay, redesigning our mobility and our daily interactions.
With the idea of starting a reflection on the use of public space – which is now increasingly regulated, limited and reduced – since 2014 Paolo Patelli and Giuditta Vendrame, through the project Friction Atlas collect, classify and make visible the laws, rules and devices that regulate the way people move, meet, use and gather in public space.
Within the framework of Meeting Grounds we will discuss the conditions of performativity and public space, law and protocols and art and theory with Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos (Legal Scholar, Theorist and Artist), Recetas Urbanas (Architecture Collective) and Heleen de Hoon (Theatre Practitioner and Dramaturge).
This event has been made possible thanks to the support of Cultuur Eindhoven.
