Tracing Urban Flows
Speisekino / Food and Footage
Location: Zentrum für Kust und Urbanistik (ZK/U), Berlin
Date: 11 July, 2017
This Speisekino is organized as an outcome of the course “Environment, Politics & Urban Infrastructures” offered by the Urban Management Program at the Technische Universität Berlin. CUW together with the students select a series of short documentaries that explore the relationship between cities, social inequalities and politics. The documentaries cover a wide range of issues including the disposal of electronic waste, the dark aspects of food and the everyday struggles to cope with energy disruptions. The main goal of this event is to transform an academic program into a cultural event to question urban sustainability issues by showing the strong connection between the growing consumption in cities and the geographies of resource extraction and waste disposal.
In cooperation with the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik/Center for Art and Urbanistics (ZK/U) and the Urban Management Program, Technische Universität Berlin
