Invitation to Innen.Stadt.Leben. #3
Participation, creativity, and improvisation as engines of urban future

Urban interventions like flashmobs, guerilla gardens, pop-up clubs, etc., celebrate spontaneity, creativity, and improvisation. They stand alongside or in opposition to plannability dogmas, which often enough prove to be far removed from the citizenry. However, citizens are ready and willing to participate. What would such a process look like? Where are the options for vitalizing urban spaces, for example, through culture? Or for identifying and coming to grips with these spaces through collective and participatory bottom-up processes?

Our guests – Cornelia Zuschke (city councilor Düsseldorf), Dimitri Hegemann (founder of “Tresor” in Berlin; managing director of “Kraftwerk Berlin” and “Happy Locals”), Christopher Dell (urban planner, musician, composer) in conversation with the moderators Alexander Gutzmer (former editor-in-chief of Baumeister) and Caspar Schmitz-Morkramer (founder and managing director of caspar. Editor-in-chief of Baumeister) and Caspar Schmitz-Morkramer (founder and managing director of caspar.; initiator of “Innen.Stadt.Leben.”) – on March 24, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. live in the rooms of Aedes/ANCB, with whom we are realizing “Innen.Stadt.Leben.” But without the help of our partners Ege | Carpet Concept, GROHE and Hofmann Naturstein, “Innen.Stadt.Leben.” would not be alive. Thank you very much! We are infinitely relieved to have an audience with us again this time.
