Gallery Talk with Johannes Fiedler

Friday, June 08, 2007, 8:00AM - 5:00PM

Fiedler will discuss Exterritories, his contribution to the Shrinking Cities exhibition. Exterritorial communities are the continuation of a process that began in the late 20th century-people from expanding countries and cultures filling the voids in receding societies. Fiedler's proposal to create "exterritories" within contracting regions, administered by more economically dynamic nations (e.g., a Chinese economic zone in Halle/Leipzig) exposes these schemes to necessary critiques: who benefits from such arrangements? What is growth, and why assume it is always desirable? How could we conceive a social economy more democratic and humane than the current entrepreneurial model? And, ultimately, what local efforts can make headway against forces operating on global scales?
