Opening Remarks (Venue: Bard College Berlin)

Session 1: In/visibility, Gender, Citizenship (Venue: Bard College Berlin)

How do we visually address temporal, spatial, and embodied difference? How does in/visibility link with citizenship? How does gendered social power work within transnational networks and within urban contexts? What kind of visual and participatory methods can we apply to address these questions – and how do we make sense of the images we encounter and produce in the research process?

Session 2: In/visibility and Urban Space (Venue: Bard College Berlin)

What is visible in urban space and for whom? What remains hidden – and from whom? Which visual tools can we use to grasp what is in/visible? How do visibility and visuality relate to each other? What participatory and visual approaches can we use to explore various meanings and functions assigned to urban space? How can we actively involve urban residents in research rather than simply offer them a platform to showcase their everyday experiences?

Session 3: Detecting and Visualizing Difference (Venue: Bard College Berlin)

How do we notice and make sense of difference in urban space? How do we approach difference temporally and spatially? How do we visualize difference? How do we map it? How can we use participatory digital tools to visualize difference in urban contexts? How do we produce difference through visualizations?
