The fourth Radiator Biennial Festival and Symposium brings together artists with academics, geographers, urban theorists, scientists, sociologists and fellow citizens in the discovery of a new topography of the city, based on the understanding that digital networks are transforming our notion of public and private space. The symposium “Exploits in the Wireless City” at Broadway in Nottingham (http://www.broadway.org.uk) features theorists, architects, journalists, urban planners, and artists’ works. The symposium aims to instigate discussion, debate and new interdisciplinary research networks. Curated by Anette Schäfer and Miles Chalcraft.
