A project by Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund, in co-operation with "Zagreb – Cultural Kapital of Europe 3000, Croatia," and "relations."
Together with the Ruhr Region, Essen is bidding to be named European Capital of Culture for 2010. But why? The essential things, so the project "Peripherie 3000 – Strategic Platform for Networked Centers," no longer take place in the national capitals but, for some time now, wherever peripheral positions facilitate a perspective on social and cultural foundations. The periphery, and not the center, is a position of productive uncertainty. "Peripherie 3000" takes this permanently »peripheral position« to be a positive and productive vehicle and makes it the starting point for a meditation on structures beyond centers.


In the framework of "Peripherie 3000" four joint projects tackling these themes were developed by groups from different disciplines from North Rhine-Westphalia and Zagreb.
From April 21–23, they will be presented to the public in the form of artistic-urban interventions and a colloquium.
