C20 – Institut für transformative Utopie
In the heart of the ALTE MU Impuls-Werk, docked to the Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation evolves a room for the future. On the threshold between learning and professional activity, between network and laboratory the Institute C20 offers a location for your visions, to think, research and learn from the future.
C20 – a room
To preserve the ALTE MU as free and playground for visions and future activities, we invite future-shapers with their ideas, momentum, approaches and point of views to the Institute C20. 16 workplaces will be occupied project- or cooperation-related to young savages, students, learners and researchers and their projects.
Synergies, exchange and mutual enhancement between the ALTE MU, the creative village in the city, the Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation and the future represented by students, researchers and producers is a central part of the function of Institute C20. The ALTE MU is a place full of creative expertise, a “field test” for the city future. The Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation dedicates their interdisciplinary competencies to development and management of the ALTE MU. The Institute C20 provides in this constellation space for professionalization and research. This specific ecosystem enables a positive cycle of knowledge and expertise.
To fuel those synergies and a residency-program in the Institute C20, we are happy to invite a young generation of talent to explore the playground with us. We welcome good ideas, theses, projects or concepts that relate to the question: How do we want to work, live and lodge?
C20 – a network
The fusion between practice, research and production carried out in the ALTE MU will be spreaded. A widening network of futur-shapers will establish round the Institute C20. On the one hand we rely on a good contact to other creative centers and bottom-up initiatives, that will be part of the exchange in the Institute C20, on the other hand, the close interaction with universities and students guarantees a constant flow of new knowledge and expertise.
In the Institute C20 the existing networks of the ALTE MU and the Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation will contribute to professional possibilities of students, makers and producers and at the same time this group will stand up for shared visions of future society.
Our individual future is in community, and the community of the future depends on us.
