The Laboratory for Art/Architecture in the Public Sphere at the Department of Architecture of the University of Patras, hosted by Rick Lowe’s Victoria Square Project, has organized a public discussion with the participation of students in the Public Art course, who ask thought-provoking questions about the activation of urban space as an arena of public political discourse, and as a transformative force in regions of social conflicts, such as Victoria Square. The sound installation Empowerment of Gender Voice: Sound Acts in Victoria Square is being presented, realized by Angeliki Diakrousi as a diploma project, in the framework of the research topics of the Laboratory. During the last decade, the Laboratory has researched spatial agency through art-political practices, realizing experimental works on urban areas that have undergone radical change due to migration, gentrification, and social exclusion.

The presentation takes place in Greek.
