My public space: Agora, urban space and citizenship (Symbiosis)
Ideas about what is public and what is private have been put into a political perspective that involves positions on democracy and citizenship and a social perspective that discusses ideas of belonging and being with each other. In a forever transformed urban landscape that the economic and the refugee crisis have created, artists, architects, philosophers, urban planners and students will be gathering to discuss public space as political space, its role and function, the right to the city, art interventions and the idea of citizenship. The discussion will employ the format of the agora, with introductory speeches, shorter interventions, actions devised by the students and opportunities for various formats of participation and voting.
Coordinators: Angeliki Avgitidou, Marcello Balbo,Laura Fregolent and Simona Morini.
With the participation of students of the Philosophy course of the University IUAV; Gaia Redaelli (PAX-PATIOS de la Axerquía); Mohammed Salhi, Maria Del Pilar Sanchez (Comune di Venezia); Matelda Bottoni (Consulta per la casa) and Annita Koutsonanou.
