Reclaiming the city


Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) is an interdisciplinary course for students and a series of lectures and activities open to all. The third edition of Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (VUB) with the title: RECLAIMING THE CITY explores scopes and impact of new technologies.

On Tuesday 21h of November 2017 Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (VUB) proposes several activities to explore and experience the impact of new technologies on the urban public(s): Constant member Peter Westenberg will give a workshop ’exploring the urban WIFI’.
In this workshop we wonder how wifi-connections shape the urban public space. The workshop starts with a tour along Wi-Fi cameras in the BRONKS-area. Participants will discover digital artistic experiments in this neighborhood and will connect to an open access city guerilla server to leave their footprint in the urban wifi sphere.

Other activities include: the performance ’walking the line’ (BENJAMIN VANDEWALLE), workshop ’(dis)empowerment in a digital society’ (ILSE MARIÁ‹N), workshop ’making a Citizen Observatory’ (Jesse Zaman & Wolfgang de Meuter). Experiences & opinions will be exchanged and debated during the CLOSING DEBATE

This activity starts at BRONKS (Varkensmarkt 15 - 1000 Brussel) at 6PM.

Places are limited to 20 persons.
