Workshop: ‚Urban Alphabets’ von Suse Miessner
11. September 2014 @ 14:00 - 13. September 2014 @ 12:00free
How can we collectively create a city-alphabet? Which characters, logos and tags make the Brunnen neighborhood unique? How to send personalized messages with the app? During the ‘Urban Alphabets’ Workshop, the artist Suse Miessner introduces her smartphone app and invites the participants to contribute to the Berlin city-alphabet. The ‘Urban Alphabets’ workshop draws the attention of the citizens to their physical environment and invites them to actively shape it. The typographic elements are collected in physical space, categorized in the digital space and shown from September 12 to 14 from 19h30 clock during the screening.
This Workshop is part of CONNECTING CITIES: URBAN REFLECTIONS within Kuturfestival Wedding-Moabit 2014.
