What makes urban public spaces attractive? Perhaps it is their theatrical quality, in which townspeople are both the actors who perform the routines and rituals of their diverse, everyday lives, and the spectators who enjoy watching the performances of others from a terrace or bench in the square. But what happens when the direction of this ongoing performance is taken over by digital platform companies such as Google and Facebook?

After the lecture, you can take a tour of the Street View exhibition by curator Bart van den Boom. Book your tickets below:
