With this exhibition, < rotor > continues its examination of questions around designing the public space and participation. The invited artists and artists' collectives have realized exemplary projects in different European city districts, which we will present in two venues. One part of the exhibition will be shown at < rotor >, the second one in the HDA – House of Architecture. All the works originate from urban contexts. Using strategies of communication, they manage to involve the expertise of neighbours in the creative process, and combine this with convincing aesthetics. In addition to presenting their works in the exhibition, the participating artists will talk about their working methods in the frame of a symposium.
