Ivory Tower

Academy for Media Arts is located where I would like to see it most, in between. And I mean that in the strict sense of the word, because I believe that the interspaces will be the most exciting spaces in the future. So, not these fixed gravitational places, but what moves between the designated places.

Article “Politics of Space” for the Lab publication of the Academy of Media Arts.
The segregation processes in media environments are nothing but the enhancement of tendencies manifesting themselves in the “real” space with the creation of the urban ghettos and their counterparts, the (suburban) protected social reservoirs for the upper classes.
These access-controlled residential areas can be found today all over the world, in Third World and in western democracies as well as in the east neo-capitalist countries.
They range from heavily protected impenetrable fortresses to retirement towns for well-off pensioners or projects like Walt Disney’s Celebration – an entire residential town (not a theme park).

Future Urbanism

This general trend reflects on all aspects of our existence: culture, politics, economics, etc. and, of course, on cities. One of the most significant achievements of the 20th century – network technologies – have provided our planet with a totally new digital layer: virtual reality. This has given rise to a whole new sphere of interplay between urban and media networks. Communication networks are changing our society.
