Networked Cultures

Networked Cultures investigates the cultural transformations under way in Europe through examining the potentials and effects of networked spatial practices. Initiated in cooperation with Goldsmiths, University of London, the project collaborates with art, architectural and urban practices across Europe and beyond to look at ways in which contested spaces allow for a multi-inhabitation of territories and narratives across cultural, social or geographic boundaries. Sites of alternative urban engagement have been collected on a database and have been presented in a variety of formats, including exhibitions, films and books.

Throughout 2008 and 2009, Networked Cultures has connected locations across the globe in a series of public events, the Networked Cultures Dialogues, curated by Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer.

Building on the network logic of the Networked Cultures project, the series of Networked Cultures Dialogues offers a range of settings to bring the project contributors together with a multitude of local actors. Events include the launch of a comprehensive publication and film archive, as well as exhibitions, video installations and live discussions. These platforms for public debate follow four thematic strands: Network Creativity, Contested Spaces, Trading Places, Parallel Worlds.
