Ms. Maeva Baudoin, a lecturer at the Faculty of Economics, is responsible for the current exhibition on "The Future of Cities. Not for Granted" at the Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei.
How is urban planning and architecture designed for the 99 percent of society? What if a concept of beauty prevailed in architecture that did not mean luxury for the one percent, but was understood as a "first gesture of care and love" (Raul Pantaleo)? What if it were used as a "tool to improve lives" (Anna Heringer)? This exhibition presents eleven artistic and architectural examples of how people are responding to challenges from climate change, digitalization, and migration. It takes a look, sketches sometimes gloomy, sometimes brighter visions, and shows pioneering approaches to solutions.
