PLACE, TIME, and PEOPLE: Biographies and the Production of Places

The final conference under the broader rubric of »Biographies & the Production of Space« explores novel approaches to the possible roles that people and time play in shaping the sense and notion of places. What is the relationship between time and geography? Where geography is not only understood as location and space, but also the terrain of memory and action, imaginations and projected futures.

As often concluded, human lives and actions are not simply contained within space, but rather they are the active producers of a dialogue between time and geography – where »subjectivity and facticity engage in a constant nervous process of dialog.« [1] How do biographies regulate, determine, and silently infuse the conversation of time and geography with content and substance?

In framing our sense of time (and place), how do the exchanges between biography and geography articulate a framework of reading into forms of histories, place-politics, and cultural maps? 

In parallel to the symposium, artistic positions that explore the production of spaces as an individual and social phenomenon will be exhibited, weaving their way around the Akademie’s aisles and passageways. The installations are shown until December 17, 2017.
