Screen City Festival
Shaping Public Space. Moving Cityscapes
The Screen City festival is dedicated to the moving image presented in public spaces, on the city’s facades, shop windows and urban venues. It took place for the first time during from October 25th – 27th 2013. The program experimented with the reshaping of public space through Media Art, presenting a program of video art, animation, creative data visualizations, projection mapping and participatory urban media interventions.
The festival explored different perspectives on how we construct and deconstruct our city and most of all – space. The spatial practice of everyday life in comparison to the representations of space, how we perceive our city – to how we conceptualize our city – through mapping, planning and the intellectualization of space.
