The Smart Mandate Performance-Vortag von Orit Halpern

Today, growing concerns with climate change, energy scarcity, security, and economic collapse have turned the focus of urban planners, investors, and governments towards “infrastructure” as a site of value production and potential salvation from a world consistently defined by catastrophes and “crisis”.

This talk will interrogate the different forms of futurity and life that are currently emerging from this complex contemporary relationship between cybernetics, ecology, and finance that is shaping contemporary “smart” urban developments in locations such as Kolkata, New York, and Songdo.
