In the last 4 years the COST Action has elaborated a European approach on the phenomenon of Urban Agriculture. The main findings and important policy recommendations are now published in the book Urban Agriculture Europe.

You are kindly invited to participate the Actions's final event. The book will be presented in detail with particular regard to European policies: How can Urban Agriculture support the Europe 2020 strategy? Which policies - from the CAP to Research and Innovation policies, from Environmental to Social and Territorial policies - can benefit from Urban Agriculture? How can these policies help to unfold the potentials of Urban Agriculture?

Beside presentations you are invited to take part in a World Cafe to jointly explore the potentials of Urban Agriculture for the different policies of the European Community.

The meeting is co-organized by the University of Gent and by ILVO (Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research).

For a detailed program please see:

The meeting is especially dedicated to stakeholders acting on the European policy level and representatives of the European Commission. 

Please indicate your intention to participate by mailing to science.cost@la.rwth-aachen.de until 31/01/2016

In her work Annett Zinsmeister concentrates on the intersections between art and architecture, combining theoretical research with art. She creates grand installations—conceptual spaces—and works with various media such as photographies, drawings, films, and texts. Because of their immersive qualities her works have a special impact on the spectator, illuminating human perception and demystifying everyday habits. Zinsmeister poses questions about communication, social interactions and transformations of the urban space. One of her fundamental principles and a recurring element in her œuvre is the utilization and creation of modular systems and structures.

Her installation Virtual Interior MoMA white is currently also on display at MoMA NYC in the exhibition „Endless House. Intersections of Art and Architecture“.

On Chikei
Norihiko Dan / at Architektur Galelie Berlin, 19th of January 2016

The earth is made up of the sphere as it's main body and it's epidermis that is Chikei. The aspect to see the earth as a globe tends to provide us a particular vision of earth as a planet controlled by a single logic of dynamics similar to the early atomic physics.This leads to such global aspects as a topic of CO2 reduction plan, emphasis on the role of UN, and sygnificance to establish global standards for anti-terrorism and for stabilization of world economy. On the other hand, Chikei is the cradle for the diversity sometimes as an opposition as well as it's compensation to the globalism.
It is amazing that all kinds of various climate and environmental diversity are created in only a quarter of a Marathon course in height, that is 10km, from the top of Everest to the deepest bottom of the sea.
Chikei is composed of seas, mountains, deserts, wet lands existing unevenly and it becomes a body to give birth to multiple lives and diverse cultures of the universe. Chikei is an interface between lives and a sphere. Fingerprints of the earth is an analogy of Chikei which becomes a symbol of the diversity as an icon with no particular form.

A series of 4 artworks is made as my hommage to Chikei, seeking for it's various expressions, made of only paper and water. I believe that Chikei is formed by several powers such as water, wind,wave and sunlight in a volcanic activities or in a muddy current of the earth, with nobody's intentions. I think that it just came on earth.
I used water for the artworks because even after it has gone, it leaves profound expressions of it's engagement to the material.
In the process of these inprovisation, I challenged to have a dialogue to Chikei through such experiances and engagements which I took to the terrain transformed by an unpredictable force of others.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on January 21, 2016, 7:00 pm

Endless House considers the single-family home and archetypes of dwelling as a theme for the creative endeavors of architects and artists. Through drawings, photographs, video, installations, and architectural models drawn from MoMA’s collection, the exhibition highlights how artists have used the house as a means to explore universal topics, and how architects have tackled the design of residences to expand their discipline in new ways.

Work by architects and artists spanning more than seven decades are exhibited alongside materials from Kiesler’s Endless House design and images of its presentation in MoMA’s 1960 Visionary Architecture exhibition. Intriguing house designs—ranging from historical projects by Mies van der Rohe, Frank Gehry, Peter Eisenman, and Rem Koolhaas to new acquisitions from Smiljan Radic and Asymptote Architecture—are juxtaposed with visions from artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Bruce Nauman, Mario Merz, Rachel Whiteread, and a new acquisition from Annett Zinsmeister. Together these works demonstrate how the dwelling occupies a central place in a cultural exchange across generations and disciplines.
