<Roundtable Talk> for Cities Exhibition-Commoning Cities, is an open discussion for all citizens who care about the contemporary city and urban future. Celebrating the opening of the Seoul Biennale 2017, we would like to invite all curators, designers, and professionals who are involved in the Exhibition, to discuss the idea and opportunity of the commons in the cities today.
The event will be comprised of a series of short presentations by a group of professionals mostly out of the design practice. The group will form a counterpart to a group of curators and design professionals in order to open up wider range of diverse questions about present condition and future opportunities for the cities.
