Subject: CfP: Media Architectuur Biennale 23-27 Nov. 2020 Amsterdam/Utrecht Dear all, We are happy to announce that the 5th edition of the Media Architecture Biennale (https://mab20.mediaarchitecture.org/) will take place in Amsterdam and Utrecht on 23-27 November 2020. It is the world’s premier event on media architecture, urban interaction design, digital placemaking, urban media art and urban informatics. The MAB20 comprises various elements such as workshops, symposia, presentations, tours and exhibitions, and a partnership with the Amsterdam Light Festival. There are many ways to get engaged and different calls that might be of interest. The theme of the 2020 edition is #Futures Implied, which opens up investigations into future scenarios implied in today’s urban technologies like digital platforms and smart city technologies. How can we shape technologies to respond to their surroundings, contributing to cities that are both socially and ecologically sustainable? The point of departure is that technologies are never neutral enablers, they are built upon numerous spoken and unspoken assumptions about urban life, each with their own implications for both social relations as well as their effect on the natural ecosystem. We already have a number of calls that are open, with more to follow soon. Please find our Call for Papers here: https://mab20.mediaarchitecture.org/calls/call-for-papers/. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): · The Aesthetics and Poetics of Responsive Urban Spaces · Citizens’ digital rights in the era of platform ecologies · Playful & Artistic Civic Engagement · Restorative Cities · More-Than-Human Cities For more information, check out our website mab20.org. The calls with the earliest closing deadlines are: · call for the workshop organizers (deadline: 18 January 2020) · call for concepts for the Amsterdam Light Festival (deadline: 18 January 2020) For any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org , or any member of the organizing team (see below).
