||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.
