Challenging prevailing, techno-economically driven ideas of future development and growth, the focus lies on the friction zones and interactions between public and private spaces, between absence and presence, visibility and invisibility, whereby digital architectures come into view just as much as physical spatial constellations and psychogeographies.
In the “Spatial Co-lab_Communities’ In(ter)vention”, facilitated by Jasmin Fischbacher and Margarita Köhl, visions of community as well as the association between spatial imaginaries and material practices will be addressed. Applying the disruptive design method, the workshop “De-growthing Sustainable Development – Mapping the (im)possibility of change” (Magdalena Haidacher in cooperation with the SDG Forum Vorarlberg) will tackle the question of how to foster sustainable development beyond the logic of growth. Using digital as well as analog mapping we will develop a new set of interconnected objectives including preferable ways of their implementation (“disruptive cartography”). Including a hands-on workshop the “Disruptive Life Hacking Lab” (Michael Kneidl) addresses the question of how can we hack, de-construct and re-contextualize existing technologies to fulfil roles that assist us in leading more ecologically sustainable ways.
Philipp J. Ehmann’s (play:vienna) workshop “Postit-ing Dornbirn_disrupting invisible barriers” combines playful exploration and intervention to develop a new mode of experiencing local spaces focussing on the friction zones between public and private, visible and invisible, presence and absence. The interactive and continuously growing installation “Situated – 2021” by Salon Flux explores the imaginaries of places, psychogeographies of spaces, and spatial transformations through body movement.
