Learning to Provoke is the second of seven podium discussions in the 2011 series »Design and Politics: The Next Phase«, initiated by ANCB in collaboration with Henk Ovink, Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and in cooperation with the Dutch Embassy in Berlin. It questions the responsibilities, skills and agendas necessary for an urban architecture practice that is effective in tackling the challenges facing our cities in their ongoing urbanisation.

Henk Ovink is convinced that »standard« urban planning approaches are no longer effective. He argues for a more politically engaged, pro-active and provocative alternative, whose primary objective is to »give meaning to the challenges and their development in our cities« and which can be achieved through »political design«; design that innovates through confronting these challenges, their factors, their various actors and their local situations. The following architects, politicians and innovators will challenge this argument for »political design« though statements, propositions and debate:

Ute Meta Bauer Associate Professor & Director, Visual Arts Program, MIT Cambridge
Christopher Dell
Theoretician and Musician, Institute for Improvisation Technology, Berlin
Theo Deutinger
TD Architects, Rotterdam
Wouter Vanstiphout
Professor Design and Politics, TU Delft

The discussion will be in English. Admission is free. Please register at reply@aedes-network-campus.de before June 17th 2011
