The Right To The Future City

The Right To The Future City


Presented by Le Guess Who?, Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons, No Seat At The Table, BAK - basis voor actuele kunst, Urban Futures Studio (Utrecht University), RAUM

“In urban social movements there is the potential to reshape the city in a different image from that put forward by its developers.” - David Harvey (2008)

Utrecht is developing at a dizzying pace and therefore facing urban issues such as rapid gentrification and (economic) segregation, as are many cities worldwide. Within the setting of Le Guess Who?, a city-wide festival at its core, we brought together six speakers who work on urban futures via artistic practices and research. How can we - through art and critical research - make an active contribution to creating a more inclusive social urban environment? Current systems of urban development exclude large groups of people. How could it be done differently? What does that require from the government? And what does that require from each other? Guests are: Minem Sezgin (No Seat At The Table), Adeola Enigbokan (environmental psychologist / Casco Art Institute), Jesse Hoffman (Urban Futures Studio / Universiteit Utrecht), Donica Buisman (RAUM), Irene Calabuch Miron (BAK - basis voor actuele kunst) and Rinke Vreeke (Le Guess Who?).
