URBAN PERIPHERIES WORKSHOP is a course exploring spatial interventions as artistic alternatives for urban transformation.

URBAN PERIPHERIES WORKSHOP consists of two parts:

Part I takes place at Aalto University/Aalto ARTS in Helsinki/Espoo in Spring 2019, and Part II takes place at UdK Berlin in Autumn 2019.

The workshop aims at enlarging the understanding of peripheries/ peripherality into areas that are difficult to verbalize. Peripheries are conventionally conceived as marginal geographical locations, whereas we will explore peripheries as ambiguous and multifaceted phenomenon – as conceptual domain, aesthetically and spatially experienced sensory spheres and states of mind shaped by complex associations and mental images.
