web platform for artistic urban practices
development & design
relaunch 2019 (in progress)
The web platform urban matters aims at a new positioning of artistic practices, exploring the diverse and often conflictual interests as potential for a new role: the urban practitioner. Urban matters also serves as information platform for current urban issues between research, theory and practice, transferring the experience of specific local contexts to urban and regional issues, public space and society to other specific contexts worldwide.
Urban matters invites practitioners and theorists to contribute to this platform as an ongoing project conceived as an open-ended process: The platform collects information and data of public art organizations, institutions, biennials, as well as projects or initiatives by individuals, dealing with urban issues, in order to create a complex and comprehensive overview from the perspective of various and interdisciplinary backgrounds like artists, architects, urban designers, sociologists, theoreticians.
