About the Enquiry Week
As an interdisciplinary cultural platform, Aedes Network Campus Berlin does not focus solely on any single knowledge field or topic. Instead it aims to bring together a range of different viewpoints and areas of expertise in order to stimulate a multi-faceted dialogue with an international outlook. In ANCB's general agenda a number of critical issues are identified as 'urban challenges'. The knowledge generated from each ANCB project interconnects with these crucial themes to deepen a multi-faceted understanding, made openly accessible in the ANCB 'Living Archive'. Resource consumption and particularly the issue of water is one of these 'urban challenges', which is continuously explored on different levels.
The perception of water influenced by cultural backgrounds and disciplines is reflected in various formats of rituals. This Enquiry Week in collaboration with AXOR hansgrohe will focus on the relevance and value of water in connection with cultural, wellnes-related, design- and research-oriented rituals in the following categories and related questions:
