Housed in a remarkable, recycled temporary tower, with far-reaching views across MK, ‘Utopia Station’ is a scientific, speculative, artistic experiment, where collaborative and collective actions combine to illustrate new urban futures.
Led by Teleinternetcafe – a team of architects, artists, urban planners and critical thinkers, who have created an interactive programme which will attempt to ask and answer a series of questions:
What is the future relationship between man and nature?
What is urbanity?
What will be our quality of life if we live in a world of infinite mobility?
What is the future of place and context?
How does your climate change?
Together with MK’s residents, Teleinternetcafe offer an open invitation to ‘Utopia Station’ to discuss, edit and design a utopian city for tomorrow by becoming part of a performative, collaborative new town production process, by drawing, writing, sketching, painting, modeling and enacting your vision for the future.
Please note that the full Utopia Station experience will be offered and fully accessible within the ground floor exhibition space of the temporary structure.
Andreas Krauth and Urs Kumberger from Teleinternetcafe are coming to MK!
Teleinternetcafe follows a multiperspectival approach and the principle of shared authorship both in practice and academia. The work operates at the interface of architecture and urban planning. It is characterized by process-oriented cooperative development strategies and an experimental approach to building and landscape typologies. An intensive engagement with the place and its situational qualities provides the starting point for the search for new and open forms of the city.
