Staging a Change

‘Staging a Change’ focuses on the transformation of the capital cities of Iran and Germany by addressing questions about urban design, participation and art in the public space of both cities. Iranian and German architects, artists, sociologists and urbanists will discuss in an open intercultural dialogue on the latest developments in day-to-day discourses and solutions in debates on urban development. Both in Tehran and Berlin, gentrification, increasing privatisation and the reclaiming of public space are being examined and negotiated in various forms by institutions, universities and self-organized groups. ‘Staging a Change’ serves as a platform for the exchange of knowledge, analysis and experience.
