In the light of Copenhagen
Belgium, Brussels
"A new United Nations climate conference will be taking place in Copenhagen in early December 2009. Its aim is to come up with a Copenhagen Protocol that will replace that of Kyoto. It would be no exaggeration to say the Copenhagen conference will be of historic significance even before it has taken place. After all, a good and wide-ranging protocol is essential if there is to be any chance of taking vigorous action against climate change. And there’s not much time to lose. The latest data all point to the accelerated warming of the planet.

Just before the UN conference, the Kaaitheater is holding the second Burning Ice encounter. We are once again inviting artists, philosophers, sociologists and politicians to formulate challenges for art in the light of the Copenhagen conference. The basic ingredients of Burning Ice 2 are the play Holland Tsunami by the Dutch theatre company SPACE and the performance Evaporated Landscapes by Mette Ingvartsen. Debates and talks will be held on the topics covered. The full programme will be announced in October."

"The Society for a Re-Natural Environment, or SRNE, is a multi-faceted, re-environmental organization dedicated to identifying, protecting, and occasionally enhancing elements of wild, non-human nature that exist or have re-inserted themselves into human dominated habitats. The SRNE is dedicated to disseminating information regarding often overlooked, everyday experiences of this aspect of nature."

Migrating Gardens is a collaborative project by Oda Projesi and Nis Rømer reflecting on the relation of micro-scale farming and migration. It is an investigation of why people move from one environment to another and how they manifest themselves in the city with their practices/professions from where they come from.
It takes place in the whole of October, with events, cycling tours and a free news paper that you can download here.

MIT Visual Arts Program Lecture Series Fall 2009
Brings together speakers from art and (counter) culture, architecture, urbanism, and media technology to discuss such questions as: In what way is the city not a fixed entity, but a process? How do artists and cultural activists reclaim the street, activating the city as backdrop and insisting on public space? What makes a city a city? Who owns the city? How can media technology be designed to intervene in and navigate the city?

US, Chicago
AREA Chicago #8 asked readers to define capitalism, resulting in 183 diverse responses. Now they are continuing this exploration by inviting you to submit (in person, via mail or email) a visual depiction or representation of capitalism. Feel free to keep it broad and define what it is, or be specific and show how it effects you and your community.

These visual representations of capitalism will be collected throughout AREA's current exhibition and event series "Everbody's Got (more) Money Issues" taking place at Mess Hall in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood throughout the month of August.

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
