Communicative Cities

Contemporary society, and public culture, is no longer formed by values and practices that arise from and remain bound to a homogenous group, but has multiple origins, addresses diverse communities, and flows across territorial boundaries.

Communicative Cities is a platform for strategic research projects and tactical interventions in public life and focuses on transformations in civic culture produced by new intersections of knowledge, media, space and mobility (and diverse modes of local agency) within Australia and internationally. Programs are designed to investigate the issues that are transforming public culture, and seek to identify new trends in the social uses of public spaces and frame the horizons of public expectations.

Program Coordinators: Professor Nikos Papastergiadis, Professor Scott McQuire and Professor Sean Cubitt.

PUBLIC LECTURE with Dr Marc Glöde, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Dr Glöde  will give an insight into his research developed at NTU CCA Singapore. Fueled by his interest in questions concerning images and image politics, as well as the correspondences between different artistic disciplines or cultural positions, he will specifically address the dynamics of the relation between images and the development of urban ideas and architecture – hence on the impact of images and on a critical artistic reflection of urbanism.
