Medienforschung, Bildende Kunst, Erziehungswissenschaften, Kunstpädagogik, Fachdidaktik
30-31 May 2008 University of Applied Arts, Vienna The modern city has been mostly regarded as a visual space, its scenic buildings, window displays and light spectacle being contemplated by the flâneur as an uninvolved spectator. However, urban space is neither neutral nor empty, but an active environment which interacts with the residents immersed in it, (over)exposes them to multisensory stimuli and is invested with meaning. The skin hosts all organs of the senses; nevertheless, the symposium will focus on spaces, practices and materials of the tactile, kinaesthetic and thermal design of public spaces and on their potential to increase the quality of life. The symposium is addressed to researchers and practitioners in the fields of design, architecture, urban planning, anthropology, philosophy and social sciences.
