18. - 26.Sep.10 LONDON: Anti Design Festival
As a response to 25 years of cultural deep freeze in the UK, the Anti Design Festival will attempt to unlock creative fires and ideas, exploring spaces hitherto deemed out-of-bounds by a purely commercial criteria.

Created initially as a direct response to the pretty commerciality of the London Design Festival, the festival will shift the focus from bums-on-seats to brain food, and from taste and style to experiment and risk. The festival will provide a rare space for unhindered exploration and creative opportunity, where ideas may fail as equally as succeed.

Directed by Neville Brody, the world-renowned graphic designer, the festival will be curated by a select group of leading practitioners in various fields. At multiple venues around Redchurch Street in London’s Shoreditch area, the festival will incorporate exhibitions, installations, workshops, performances and talks in Art, Design, Product, Film, Sound, Fashion, Performance, Print and Interactive.

14.Oct.10 - 31.Jan.11 VIENNA: Platz da! / Make Space! European Urban Public Space.
To mark the 10th jubilee of the European Urban Public Space Awards the Architekturzentrum Wien is engaging with that often addressed and sometimes overplayed subject of Public Space. Numerous questions are posed, from: What is public space? How does it arise and does it even still exist? Who does it belong to, what does it represent and who decides, for better or for worse, over public space? Who needs it and who is allowed to use it?' Is the issue still between private and public, or more about exclusion and inclusion? And finally: 'To what extent do built structures and social conditions impact on the negotiable possibilities? All of these questions are posed in the exhibition to represent the breadth of the various levels of discussion. In addition a number of exceptional international projects are contrasted with a presentation of existing situations in Vienna, current artistic, interventionist and architectural positions, theoretical analyses of urban development and representations showing the production and negotiable possibilities of and for public spaces, with strategies of resistance and appropriation. As part of the show's Videothek, FACELESS by Manu Luksch can be watched there.
