Culture of Parkour

Culture of Parkour
Presentation and talk hosted by Takemura Juku & Berliner Gazette

Speaker: Mitsuhiro Takemura & Magdalena Taube // Moderator: Krystian Woznicki // Duration: 1.5h // Age category: 16+

In Japan big cities are lacking public spaces and a rich parkour culture has evolved, related to the cosplay, otaku, video game community. This talk introduces “tobiboh” teenagers and their creative approaches to appropriating the city. We will also explore connections to the practises of digital natives and dig deeper into the spirit of parkour, when investigating Michel de Certeaus famous saying:

“Everyday life invents itself by poaching in countless ways on the property of others.”

Love for the city

Talks and Workshops | 9th – 10th of May | Bucharest

A project by Berliner Gazette, Takemura Juku and The Sponge in cooperation with Otaku Festival The commons, the public and openness in general are undergoing a profound upheaval. The catalyst is the Internet. We communicate openly, share knowledge and collaborate online in unprecedented ways. We produce tons of data and along the way crowdsourced crisis maps, bottom-up encyclopedias as well as innumerous elusive or rather invisible ‘works’. This vast new digital domain of the commons can no longer be contained by the form of private property, yet we lack the democratic structures to accommodate it. Ours is perhaps a unique moment in history. The digital avant-gardes and traditional public institutions alike are challenged by the same situation: How can we nurture and maintain cultures and forms of knowledge as commons? Taking this question seriously, the Berliner Gazette proposes to focus on the issue from a new angle. We propose to rediscover the meaning of the commons by examining those forms of knowlegde, technology and life that operate today under privatised conditions, but which we might transform into commons in the future. Hence we wish to explore our not-yet-commons, that today are our estranged, our neglected or our uncommon commons. In short: Our UN|COMMONS.
