Urban Art: Creating the Urban with Art

External activity | Jovanka Popova's presentation at the conference "Urban Art: Creating the Urban with Art" | Humboldt University Berlin | 15 – 16 July, 2016.


The conference is dedicated to new forms of art and activism in urban spaces. The challenge for a scientific approach towards Urban Art consists in its heterogeneity. Like the current forms of urbanism, Urban Art is in itself ephemeral, mobile, virtual, entertaining and at the same time often political. Here the transitions between art, architecture, city planning, urban design and politics are in constant flux. The workshop aims at the discussion and exploration of these interrelated topics and their contradictions.
