Workshop ‘The Media City’ March 22 – April 3 2010 NIMK, Amsterdam

From March 22 – April 3, the Netherlands Media Art Institute and Time Frame will host ‘The Media City’ workshop, dedicated to the exploration of narrative architecture and social interaction on public spaces.

The Media City is a specialized project development workshop for urban projections in Amsterdam. From March 22 to April 3, eight top international artists from S. Paulo, Lima, Durban, Douala and the Netherlands will be given the opportunity to explore the possibilities of visual programming interfaces for urban facades and develop their own site-specific concept.

The Media City investigates architecture as narrative and social interaction in public space. It is interested in how these specific languages, spaces of cultural meaning, can be translated into media art projects in which similarities from African and Latin American cities can be found and re-interpreted in Amsterdam.

In addition to the workshop there are 3 semi-public lectures:

– Tuesday, March 23, 20:00 – 22:00: Edwin van der Heide, Gloria Arteaga, and Doeng Jahangeer.

– Monday, March 29, 20:00 – 22:00: Mayura Subhedar, Goody Leye and Alexi Anastasieu.

– Thursday, April 1, 20:00 – 22:00: Marnix de Nijs, Lucas Bambozzi and Walter Langelaar.
