Expodium

Expodium AN URBAN DO TANK Expodium is a collective of three [Nikos Doulos, Friso Wiersum, Bart Witte]. We work unsolicited and we are for hire. We stroll and awe.
(9)

Through a variety of methods of artistic research, we generate vital information about urban areas and at the same time activate those areas and their users. We are a satellite at grass-root level; framing local developments in global discourse. We document, archive, contextualize and frequently publish information and knowledge generated through our practise. We work with an international network

of artists, architects, academics and the likes for mutual brain-picking. We collaborated with and worked for housing corporations, local governments, museums, universities, festivals and art institutions.

"In general, people in rural areas appeared less afraid of death, dead bodies and places of burial than people living in cities."

The long read: In the official telling, fears of malevolent spirits are a vestige of old, unenlightened village ways. But today urban China is rife with superstition about death. Why?

Op 20 April zijn we onderdeel van 'Onze stad, ons canvas' van RAUM. We bieden twee maal een wandeling aan.

Tijdens ‘Onze stad, ons canvas’ willen we gezamenlijk onderzoeken hoe mensen de kans pakken om zonder regels bij te dragen aan een publieke ruimte. Hoe verschillen - in de woorden van Sennet - een cité en een ville, ook al liggen ze naast elkaar? We nodig je uit voor een wandeling die het ont-regelen viert. Omdat we in mensen geloven, niet in systemen.

You like walking European cities? And always wondered about their names? So did Mapping Diversity.

A platform for discovering key facts about diversity and representation in street names across Europe, and to spark a debate about who is missing from our urban spaces.

They looked at the names of 145,933 streets across 30 major European cities, located in 17 different countries. More than 90% of the streets named after individuals are dedicated to white men. Where did all the other inhabitants of Europe end up? The lack of diversity in toponymy speaks volumes about our past and contributes to shaping Europe’s present and future.

Fijn opgeschreven verhaal over Werkspoorkwartier, featuring Gabrielle Muris, Hof van Cartesius, Vriendinnen van Cartesius en Wim!

Het Werkspoorgebied in Utrecht maakt een indrukwekkende transformatie door. Verantwoordelijk is een klein aantal zeer betrokken individuen, aan publieke en private zijde. Rinske Brand zocht ze op en noteerde hun bevlogen verhaal.

The long read: The pandemic has seen borders close and divisions widened. But in almost all aspects of life, humanity will only thrive by coming together

Let’s get (meta)physical! Let’s walk. …. Or how to be somewhere. A morning walk through some of the layers of the history of a structure, a place. These questions form some of the starting points of this walk: How could walking become an act of moving inward rather than forward, and an act of ...

In our artistic research trajectory Unmaking The Netherlands [2014-2016] we dedicated one third of our time to .

In yesterday's The Guardian Patrick Roberts writes: "Ancient tropical cities could be remarkably resilient, sometimes surviving many centuries longer than colonial- and industrial-period urban networks in similar environments....They also developed completely new forms of what a city could be, and perhaps should be."

The long read: They may be vine-smothered ruins today, but the lost cities of the ancient tropics still have a lot to teach us about how to live alongside nature

Your Wednesday read:

"Mohamed Elshahed, author of “Cairo Since 1900: An Architectural Guide,” writes that under Mubarak, fences were erected in Tahrir Square and open areas subdivided into controllable plots of grass and sidewalks. It was policy and planning “filtered through the harsh lens of state security.” Now, under Gen.-turned-President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, urban transformations have taken on an even more militarized logic."

Over the last decade, public squares across Cairo have been made inaccessible or demolished to make way for construction projects. There are no places for broad-leaved trees that could hinder surveillance nor shaded spaces that foster assembly. That is not an accident.
