“Beware Utopia! Past, Actual and Virtual Visions of Urban Future” An international conference taking place in Nuremberg in September 2017 with Lectures with 20 national and 20 international academics, 4 workshops & 400 sqm exhibition with 1000 visitors.
The idea of the Cultural Typhoon in Europe 2017 was inspired by the Cultural Typhoon, an international conference taking place annually in Japan since 2003, bringing together academics, artists and activists at stimulating locations. The CTE in Nürnberg tried to carry on the enthusiastic spirit of the first European Cultural Typhoon which took place in Vienna in 2016.
For this conference, the University of Erlangen, Chair of Japanese Studies, worked together with the team of the Institute for Applied Heterotopia (IFAH) to inspire and stimulate dialogues between academic, artistic and activist contributions.
