"The Situationist International developed in to a movement committed to the wholesale revolution of every aspect of everyday life, from architecture and urban planning to the most intimate human relationships. This was a highly intellectual but by no means academic exercise: the Situationist promoted the active détournement (subversion) of the highly mediated relations of the spectacle, in part through the creation of spontaneous, participatory situations from which a radical, desiring subjectivity can emerge as a revolutionary force."

Interdisciplinary cooperation

"Interdisciplinary collaborations not only lead to significant innovation and commercial advantage but also embodies, in and of itself, a powerful transformation in our ways of producing, consuming and relating to one another and to our world."

Knowledge exchange between specialties is enlightening not only for the results of any collaboration; the process itself will allow experts to encounter new ways of approaching problems:
"Bien que le travail de recherche de l'artiste soit rarement aussi systématique que celui du scientifique, tous les deux entretiennent une relation à la vie en tant qu'entité, et non pas en terme de détails. En fait, l'artiste aujourd'hui le fait de manière plus conséquente que le scientifique, car avec chacune de ses œuvres il fait face à un tout auto-corrélé, alors que seuls les scientifiques théoriques ont droit à ce luxe d'une vision globale. La principale différence entre les problèmes de l'artiste et du scientifique est la différence dans la forme de leur matérialisation et de leur compréhension/appréhension." (Laszlo Moholy-Nagy)
power to other cities. Local creative minds go on a daily basis to organizations like Waag Society and Mediamatic in Amsterdam, V2_ and Worm in Rotterdam and Tag in The Hague. It is about time for Utrecht to have a cultural organization that capitalizes the local creativity.

In the current context it is important add to the continuous dynamic of creation and demand for participation, to avoid the stagnation of existing structures.
