lecture by Jean-Paul Thibaud (F)

What does urban ambiance tell us about current sensory lifeforms and ways of living together? In order to answer this question we need to develop a socio-aesthetic approach of urban ecology. Working towards such a sensory reading of city environments involves closely observing changes underway. In addition, it also involves taking a critical look at their effects and implications. This lecture will therefore highlight the topic of urban ambiances as sensory lifeforms. We will be concerned with the future of urban public spaces and of conceptions about our ability to live in a shared and common world.
