Festival Catalogue CityLeaks 2015 - go get it!
Accompanying the CityLeaks Urban Art Festival 2015 our catalogue showcases artistic explorations from contemporary and urban art. The festival brings together artists working in the public space, that explore spaces in a more abstract sense and interpret urban factors in their art. In the catalogue the many artists are presented in the form of sketches, collages and pictures, some of which are based on their self-perception and their artistic language. Additionaly experts from the fields of culture and science provide some insights into the tradition, changes and the current importance of spatial discourse through texts. Theory and praxis both come together at the same fixed point: Space is, like geographer Anne Vogelpohl once said, prerequisite and product of every society.
Special Festival Offer: 10,00 € instead of 12,00 €, published by Strzelecki Books.
