Since autumn 2018, the SFB 1265 also cooperates with Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in a process-oriented series of events titled ‘Refiguring Spaces‘ to promote spaces of knowledge at the interface of academic research and public discourse with a special focus on research practices in transdisciplinary investigations on space. Questioning current discourses in the arts and the sciences, the series seeks both to uncover underlying structures of order in these discourses and to create opportunities to feed the results of these debates back into the scientific research process.
Prelude to this series was the conference on “Mappings as Joint Spatial Display” on 29th November 2018, where methods of mapping as tools for the visual articulation of heterogeneous data were discussed. In a workshop with Joost Grootens, Dagmar Pelger and Philippe Rekacewicz, the spatial interconnections of HKW were examined at different scales—from the local all the way to the global level.
