Urbiquity Urban Lab: Open Discussion about Charting Madrid and Tallinn
Urbiquity will host an Artist Talk at DeptfordX space to mark the final chapter of this year’s Urbiquity Urban Lab visual urbanism residencies.
The artist talk celebrates and investigates the work produced during the Urbiquity Urban Lab in June in Madrid and in September in Tallinn.
Urbiquity curated two intense week-long programmes of walks, site visits and discussions during which a group of international artists, sociologists and urbanists produced bodies of work around the theme of Cartographies. The residency also aimed to introduce the concept of visual urbanism to the local discourse.
Urbiquity’s Artist Talk at DeptfordX will consider the use of participatory and alternative methods in conducting and communicating visual urbanism as well as ideas of memory, movement, materiality and locality.
Urbiquity is a platform for creative and critical urbanism. Using visual methods alongside text and materiality, Urbiquity aims to investigate sociality in the built environment and generate new knowledge of the ways we inhabit increasingly multilayered, contextual and connected global localities. Urbiquity aims to relate to seemingly imperceptible processes that are either too distant or too close to grasp without conscious study.
Urbiquity is based in London, Madrid and Tallinn, but operates internationally. Urbiquity was founded by Stefano Carnelli, Pablo Conejo and Mattias Malk
