Urban Salons 2010

Urban breakfast salons 2010

In 2o1o Bettina Lamm, landscape architect and professor at LIFE, University of Copenhagen and Charlotte Bagger Brandt, curator and director of Råderum – kontor for samtidskunst hosted three  urban breakfast salons with knowledge sharing on the menu.

At every event a guest list of 10-15 selected politicians, planners, theoretics, artists and cultural entrepreneurs  were invited to contribute with their knowledge within the field of urban planning, art, architecture, temporality and urban strategies. The table was set in three public accessible urban spaces: The habour area in Køge, Knuden outside the faculty library at University of Copenhagen and on the roof top of the old Sadolin factory. The idea is to create a strong network and environment of knowledge sharing within the field of artistic, cultural and architectural strategies in urban space.

Urban Play salon no. 1

Urban Play – Salon for play, arts and performativity in urban space

June 23 10 – 12 am

Råderum and landscape architect Bettina Lamm will lead an informal discussion about play, arts and performativity in urban space. The field of art and play could potentially be a innovative way to explore and transform our cities and how we perceive our surroundings. Urban space can be looked upon as an arena on which we as humans perform through behavior and movement. New artistic and architectural interventions can set the body in motion, offering new possibilities for action and changed social scenes.
The salon takes place in the artistic  container community KNUDen in Ørestad Nord, where Buro Detours, Giv Rum, Wood Works and Råderum at the invitation of Ørestad Nord Group will be present through the summer and autumn of 2010.

At Urban Play Salon 2 the discussion was focused on the arts as a drive for various processes such as social change and urban developement and other themes.
