Interlace the Interspace

Intervals and interspaces

The public academic colloquium on the future of art in public spaces – entitled ‘Interlace the Interspace: Art in the City’ – was initiated and organised by the Institute for Art History and Music (IKM) at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.

As a co-organiser of the colloquium, SEEHOF – being an association for urban development and art in urban spaces – felt it had a duty to contribute to the theoretical conversation about the regeneration of inner-city spaces through prominent art, the experimental use of interspaces, intervention and participation.

It managed to get lots of prominent academics, artists, curators and city planners to contribute to the colloquium, all of whom have recently distinguished themselves in remarkable ways on the international stage with their new approaches and projects on art in urban spaces.
