3rd Think Space Unconference / Money

The annual theme Money and its questions posed by the Think Space 2013 | 2014 guest curators Ethel Baraona Pohl & Cesar Reyes Najera will undoubtedly trigger conversations at the upcoming Unconference event. Conceived as a series of highly interactive sessions for a hundred participants, Money Unconference will enable thinkers, architects, participants, authors, winners, jurors and guest curators from the MONEY cycle to meet in person at Lauba, People and Art House in , 11-13 June 2014.

Along with its unique approach in which new forums for thought are created via new design objects, in this cycle Think Space Programme is again leaning on historical discourse that normally takes the form of reflection through writing. As part of the 2013/2014 cycle of competitions, Think Space was calling for Money Papers in the following fields of inquiry: Territories, Culture & Society and Environment. Through a vast amount of proposals submitted from researchers, scholars, and practitioners, pieces holding several intriguing topics were selected based on abstracts submitted and complete papers are currenty undergoing the final evaluation proceedure. Selected ones will be published on Unconference Proceedings and presented by their authors in person.

Another asset to the Unconference Programme will be The Money Exhibition, presenting the awarded entries at Lauba, House for People and Art, continuing to be on display after the Unconference event. More information can be found here.
