Join speculative architect Liam Young on this audio-visual expedition to a city found somewhere between the present and the predicted, the real and imagined.

Digital technologies are radically reshaping our perception and occupation of cities. Join speculative architect Liam Young and an all-seeing smart city operating system as they take a tour in a driverless taxi through a network of software systems, autonomous infrastructures, ghost architectures, anomalies, glitches, and sprites, searching for the wilds beyond the machine. The talk will be an audio-visual expedition to a city found somewhere between the present and the predicted – stitched together from fragments of real landscapes and designed urban fictions.

The performance will be preceded by a programme of short films:

Transitions | Aurèle Ferrier | 2017 | Switzerland | 13’
View From Above | Hiwa K | 2018 | Germany | 13’
The Hymns of Muscovy | Dimitri Venkov | 2018 | Russia | 14’
