contribution # 2 | I WILL CARRY YOU OVER HARD TIMES | (non-verbal) | concept, composition, direction: falk hübner / performance: maarten zaagman | in i will carry you over hard times a percussion player performs a musical choreography without instruments, miming movements that are synchronized with the soundtrack coming out of the loudspeakers, ending in a tour de force in which the boundaries between the possible and impossible become very thin.

contribution # 3 | ARJEN DUINKER | (dutch spoken) | the dutch poet arjen duinker reads from his recent work

contribution # 4 | LIGHTS FLICKERING – as a documentation of pause | mei-yi lee & nishiko | (non-verbal) | pause is a light installation by the japanese artist nishiko from 2010, composed of fluorescent lights which flicker randomly and endlessly. _showing the installation from a purely documentary point of view in a white cube felt totally inadequate, because the most important part of the work – the experience – is completely lost. _in order to regain the experience in a form that allows itself to be stored, nishiko invited the percussionist mei-yi lee to re-enact the light installation.

IABR—2016: NEXT TALK #8 w/ OLIVER WAINWRIGHT

Oliver Wainwright discusses the causes and consequences of the real estate market driven developments in London (and other cities he recently visited). Which future will the city end up with? Will it be a future of public-spirited, generously sized housing, with value retained in public hands in perpetuity, or one of meanly scaled hutches, squeezed down by the market and sold off to the highest bidder? And what opportunities does Oliver distinguish for urban designers and others to counterbalance the power of money?

In this Next Talk, Harriet Bulkeley will ask, what are experiments doing in our cities – how and why has experimentation come to be the way in which the transition to an economy we want, seems to be born? And she will examine what are experiments doing in our cities – what are their intentions, impacts and politics? Investigating how and for whom cities are being made experimental, this talk will help us think about the transition to an economy we want, how it might be made and where it might come undone.
