Areas of sustainable practice
The Kollektiv nachhaltige Kultur | KnK asks together with the citizen council of OderlandBerlin how a sustainable urban-rural fabric can be created
Talk will be in german.
To what extent does a sustainable way of life require a different way of thinking about the environment? What are the foundations for sustainable urban-rural structures? What questions move architecture, urban development or art with regard to future land use? What insights can be built upon and what do we want to recommend for imitation?
An interactive evening of exchange with the participation of all present, among others:
– Over the past two years, building on expertise from science, civil society and activism, the Sustainable Culture Collective (KnK) has created the fictitious region OderlandBerlin, the first sustainable region in Germany. The Council of Citizens of OderlandBerlin has jointly developed the foundations of this model region, as an ‘example to follow’. KnK are the theater director Anne Schneider, the dramaturge Fabian Larsson, the performance artist and sustainability manager Franziska Pierwoss, the author and curator Adrienne Goehler and the organization researcher Dr. Anke Strauß.
– Dr. Hilke Berger is an urban researcher and works in the CityScienceLab at HafenCity University in Hamburg. At the intersection of cultural studies and urban planning, she focuses on practices of participation, art, politics, and digitality. She asks: What happens when artists interpret the data from urban research?
– Dr. Saskia Hebert has been researching, teaching and practicing urban transformation processes in various constellations, contexts and formats for years, including a professorship in the master’s program “Transformation Design” at the University of Fine Arts in Braunschweig (2015-2020). As an architect and owner of the office subsolar* architektur & stadtforschung in Berlin, she primarily explores the question of how the future can be (co-)designed and how the narration of the future influences our ability to design.
– Andrea Vetter is a journalist and cultural anthropologist. She writes, researches, inspires, organizes for social-ecological change, especially for the House of Change in East Brandenburg and the magazine Oya: enkeltauglich leben. She is particularly interested in convivial technology, old and new eco-feminist ideas, degrowth, and successful patterns of commoning.
