Arts and the Urban Commons: New Visions for a Phoenix City

  • Ahmadreza Hakiminejad (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


SPACEX (Spatial Practices in Art and ArChitecture for Empathetic EXchange) is an EU-funded "transdisciplinary research action, comprising of 13 universities and academies and 16 cultural organisations, across 11 EU countries with 1 partner in Palestine, which tends to "respond to the troubling rise of populist nationalism and conflict in European societies by engaging new publics and forging a culture that embraces diversity, difference, and discursive exchange within cities, towns and urban sites."

The event entitled ‘Arts and the urban commons: new visions for the phoenix city’, will address "the issues arising from Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture. We will hear from artists, curators, researchers and local citizens, this will give an insight into some of the cultural activities that are played out in the city as well as the broader context of arts and culture as a UK government process of regeneration. We imagine questions of agency, function and the depoliticization of arts and culture will result from the talks and conversations planned for the day." - SPACEX
