Public Space: Fights and Fictions | DEMO:POLIS - The Right to Public Space

Registration

Each of the conference keynotes is accompanied by a “Denkraum” (Round Table). The “Denkräume” provide a focused continuation of debates initiated by the keynotes, opening them up and supplementing them with perspectives and statements from keynote speakers and other experts.

To join one of the “Denkräume”, you have to register by 15 May 2016. To register, simply send an email to ticket@adk.de with the title of the “Denkraum” you would like to attend. You can also register to join a number of “Denkräume”, if you wish.

We will confirm your place by email and reserve a ticket in your name. Reserved tickets have to be collected from the Akademie ticket desk at the latest 90 minutes before the Denkraum begins.

Please note:

All the “Denkräume” are held in English. They will also be transmitted in audio to the auditorium (Studio) to allow a larger audience to follow the discussions or visitors to listen in as they wish.

There is no need to register for the keynotes or other programme events at the conference.
