Urban Reflections is presented in the framework of the Participatory City 2014 of the Connecting Cities programme and locally embedded in the  Kulturfestival Wedding & Moabit. The focus is on the participation of citizens and pedestrians in artistic scenarios, which is unforced in a diverse programme with panel discussions, talks, workshop, Light parcours and an Urban Picnic.
Light Parcours 11- 14 September, 19.30-00.00

With Urban Reflections Public Art Lab transforms the windows in Brunnenstraße into interactive light and projection windows.

The windows of the neighbourhood of the Brunnenstr. 64-72 are transformed into meida windows and become a place for intercultural hybrid encounters and community building, where site-specific interactive art works invite the pedestrians to participate and co-create.
The Connecting Cities commissions Occupy the Screen, Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard, Urban Alphabets, Human Beeing are shown, as well as works from Lichtpiraten, a cooperation project of Public Art Lab and Quartiersmanagement Brunnenstraße, the students of Leuphana University Lüneburg and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and a video programme by Screen City and Videospread.
