The Welfare City – Becoming an urban utopia?

Join us for a seminar focusing on the roles of architecture and urban development in an increasing complex present and future characterized by a growing social inequality and by climate change as some of the biggest threats to the welfare city.

We’ll be presenting concrete strategies and possible solutions through a full-day programme of presentations and debates with local and European voices from architecture, city planning, policy-making, and research.

NEW CAFx TEAM MEMBER!

Welcome our new PhD student Sofie Stilling, who will be strengthening Copenhagen Architecture Festival Research, exploring film as a tool in the early phases of decision making in architecture. Sofie will be supervised by Josephine Michau, Ellen Braae and Mads Farsø.

Sofie has a background in landscape architecture and film, and was part of the editorial team in the first year of the festival.

Architecture is more than just bricks, frameworks and compartments. It is sensual, corporeal and social, it is political, historic and cognitive – material as well as immaterial. Sofie will explore how film can be used as a tool to communicate place bound material and sensuous characteristics between stakeholders involved in the early phases of architecture.

The project is made possible by generous contributions from Innovationsfonden, Realdania and University of Copenhagen.

Copenhagen Architecture Festival

The call for proposals for Forecast’s fifth edition is now open!We’re delighted to announce that the call for proposals for Forecast’s fifth edition is now open!

Forecast offers artists and creative thinkers the chance to work with accomplished mentors toward bringing their projects to fruition.

Creative practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields anywhere in the world are encouraged to apply with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of the mentors in this edition, and from that mentor’s unique approach to material and knowledge production.

The mentors in Forecast’s fifth edition are chef Manu Buffara (Brazil), curator Koyo Kouoh (Cameroon), writer and researcher Evgeny Morozov (Belarus), visual artist and theater director Markus Öhrn (Sweden), musician Du Yun (China), and photographer and filmmaker Tobias Zielony (Germany).

Find out more about each mentor’s field of expertise and what he or she is looking for in a potential mentee on our website.

The deadline for applications is March 1, at 11:59pm CET.

The selection process is two-tiered. First, the mentors carefully review all proposals and invite three candidates each to workshop with the mentor and present their ideas at the Forecast Forum in Berlin, taking place July 13–19, 2020. At the conclusion of the Forum, each mentor chooses one mentee.

Each of the six mentees will receive a production budget and artist fee, and will have nine months to bring their ideas to fruition. In addition to independent, ongoing exchanges with their mentors, this period also includes a one-on-one work-stay with the mentor at an international partner institution.

The final projects will be presented to the public at the Forecast Festival, taking place April 6–10, 2021. The Forum and the Festival both take place at radialsystem, Berlin.

Forecast can only accept applications submitted in English via the online application form. Please consult the FAQ and Guidelines sections on our website for more details before applying.
