Poster Exhibition 2014: Creativity in the Cities

This exhibition is depicting creative spaces in East and Southeast Asia and Europe. The core objective is to increase awareness that culture and creativity can be considered as key assets of urban development and that creative spaces may serve as a visual spatial symbol to connect art with city space and citizens. Creativity needs a vibrant, urban environment and spaces where cultural diversity, networking and mutual inspiration can be experienced – possibly at cheap rent. Former factories, warehouses or abandoned apartment houses provide spatial resources in the cities and offer huge chances when converted into creative hubs: A complex of galleries, artist studios, craft shops, design studios as well as bars, restaurants, and cafés may form an inspirational and attractive neighborhood, both for the local citizens and for tourists. Creative spaces can also develop into a visual spatial symbol of city marketing, which contribute to build an image of a modern and cosmopolitan metropolis against the backdrop of increasing global city competition. In this way creative spaces may be understood as one cornerstone of cultural industry development. In Europe and the US creative spaces, also known as creative clusters or cultural quarters, emerged in the 1970s and 1980s. They were often driven by individual artists occupying vacant factories and warehouses located in declining industrial districts with low rents and weak governmental control. Nowadays, the value of creative spaces lies not only in economic possibilities, but in their intrinsic value as vehicles for the preservation of (industrial) cultural heritage and promotion of the arts. A special thanks goes to all the people who contributed information and visual material to this exhibition.

Poster Exhibition 2012: Chinas Metropolen im Wandel: Die Zweite Transformation (变化中的中国都市) (4th edition)

 

China steht vor der Herausforderung der sogenannten „Zweiten Transformation“. Darunter versteht man die Abkehr von einem rein quantitativen Wirtschaftsmodell basierend auf niedrigen Arbeitskosten hin zu mehr qualitativem Wachstum basierend auf der Produktion beziehungsweise der Bereitstellung von Waren & Dienstleistungen höherer Wertschöpfung verbunden mit geringerer Umweltbelastung. „Made in China“ soll im Zuge der Zweiten Transformation zu „Created in China“ werden. Der wachsende Wohlstand macht aus der „Fabrik der Welt“ einen zunehmend attraktiven Absatzmarkt sowohl für internationale als auch für hochwertige chinesische Produkte. Aus „Made in China“ wird in Zukunft dank eines an Bedeutung gewinnenden Binnenmarktes daher auch „Sold in China“. Chinas Metropolen sind Motoren diesen tiefgreifenden Wandels. Hier findet Auf- und Umbruch statt. Urbane Räume wirtschaftlicher Restrukturierung stellen u.a. ehemalige Fabrikareale dar, die eine Konvertierung hin zu Kultur & Kreativität erfahren. Ein Fokus sind daher die 798 Art Zone in Beijing oder das M50-Künstlerviertel in Shanghai. Es werden insgesamt 50 Themen- und Fotoposter im DINA1-Format gezeigt. Neben ausdrucksstarken Bildern illustrieren zahlreiche aufwendig gestaltete Karten und Diagramme die aktuellen Veränderungen in diesem hochdynamischen Land. Die Poster- und Fotoausstellung ist Bestandteil der Veranstaltungsreihe CHINATIME Hamburg 2012, organisiert vom Senat der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg. Sie wurde von der Hamburg Innovation GmbH, Arbeitsstelle für Wissens- und Technologietransfer (AWITT) sowie vom Institut für Geographie der Universität Hamburg unterstützt.
