2022, Berlin students from various disciplines came together to consider how to open up a space outside the academic context in which research results could be presented and those interested in urban policy could be brought together. Current problems could be debated and solutions developed together.
These considerations resulted in the symposium (re)searching urbanity, in which a total of 300 visitors participated in the nearly 30 presentations (workshops, lectures, walks, screenings, etc.) on critical urban research. Motivated by the exciting exchange, concept & execution should now be refined:
With the reinforcement of 15 new team members, each bringing individual perspectives and skills, we aim to become more accessible, break down further barriers between research, activism, art and local networks, and open up additional events, venues & communication channels.
