Linzer Baukultur Stammtisch in cooperation with afo architekturforum oberösterreich and kulturtankstelle
In May 2018 Social Design hosted a public Baukultur Stammtisch in Linz in close collaboration with afo architekturforum oberösterreich and kulturtankstelle. The Stammtisch was dedicated to the overall question of which societal impact can be evoked by spaces, in which knowledge and wishes about the city are created, mediated and transmitted.
Reading the city and affecting a change: Which societal impact can be evoked by spaces, in which knowledge and wishes about the city are created, mediated and transmitted? What kind of knowledge and whose wishes are (not) heard and thus can (not) shape the future of our cities and a better way of living together? How can spaces, such as afo architekturforum oberösterreich, kulturtankstelle and the Social Design studio, open up and share their experiences and know-how with others? We are aiming to empower our projects towards self-organization - it is possible to organize self-organization at all? What conditions would it need to enable self-organization among a particular group and how can these conditions be fostered? What is the role of a Social Designer coming from the outside to a community aiming to set an impulse? How invisible should and can one be in a project? What is the ideal moment to hand over a project to a community or respective group? And, last but not least, what stays after we are gone? How to overcome the temporality and the ad-hoc nature of many projects in order to achieve a lasting impact?
In May 2018 Social Design hosted a public Baukultur Stammtisch in Linz in close cooperation with afo architekturforum oberösterreich and kulturtankstelle, a former petrol station, which has recently been transformed into an artistic-scientific lab. Our moderator, Social Design student Ivan Pantelić, guided the audience through the evening and led the discussion according to the aforementioned questions in a humorous but also pointed manner. Apart from our cooperation partners, Sigi Atteneder (kulturtankstelle) and Franz Koppelstätter (afo architekturforum oberösterreich), the general audience and a bunch of Social Design students, we had also invited the artists Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber as well as the documentary filmmakers Elisabeth Guggenberger and Helmut Voitl to share their extensive knowledge and experiences of previous projects with us.
