Guided tour in English
Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw invites you to the guided tour in English.
Guide: Katarzyna Benda
At the core of the WARSAW IN CONSTRUCTION festival lies the question about the universal design of streets so that they are accessible and friendly to all residents. We believe that the streets of Warsaw can accommodate everyone.
During the festival, we will also touch on other aspects of the "fight for the streets", such as name changes that ignite strong identity conflicts. We will also talk about the different ways in which the city is sensed and navigated, as well as the function of the blue and red boards of the Municipal Information System of Warsaw that guide us through its streets. There will also be a journey through the city's heat islands, i.e. places where the capital overheats. We will listen to the immediate soundscape of streets and how it affects us. We will also tell the story of the Pedestrian Critical Masses.
In debates and festival meetings, we plan to discuss possible ways forward for cities in the face of the climate crisis, including: protecting and planting greenery, retaining rainwater and reducing the role of the car in the city in favour of public transport and pedestrians, as well as safe and ecological mobility. The future of cities will be influenced by both the designers of systemic solutions and the users of these concepts.
Tickets availabe here.
