The Stadtlabor is pleased to announce its event series for the Winter Semester 2023/2024!
The Stadtlabor for Multimodal Anthropology invites to three public events during the Summer Semester 2023.
A Film Screening and Discussion with invited guests on the legacy of Latour. This is a joint event by the Stadtlabor for Multimodal Anthropology and the Anthropology of Environment | Human Relations laboratory at the Institut für Europäische Ethnologie, HU-Berlin.
The WAVEMATTERS project convened the special format Sensing and making sense of cities as wave fields: A multimodal guided bus tour through “hot spots” in Madrid at the EASST2022 conference “The Politics of Technoscientific Futures”.
On July 19th 2022, 14:30-16:00, the main results of the Studienprojekt’s ‘Ageing Cities’, coordinated by Tomás Criado, were presented in the IfEE’s Institutskolloquium (SoSe22). The presentation was delivered by the group of students who partook in the project: Maximilian Apel, Erman Dinc, Christine Maicher, Adam Petras, Doreen Sauer, and Anna Maria Schlotmann.
In our team’s first jointly organised conference panel in Madrid in early July we explored, with colleagues from all over Europe, Canada and Chile, how devices, knowledges and practices for feeling, sensing, making sense of and regulating potential harm borne from the air.

Eröffnung der mobilen Forschungswerkstatt zur kooperativen Stadtentwicklung beim KO-Markt des Haus der Statistik am 14. Mai 2022
In this Winter Semester’s 21-22 Stadtlabor Online Seminar Series, we aim to invite ground-breaking anthropological projects where multimodality features not just as an add-on of particular inquiries, but as a central mode of research and intervention.
Workshop, November 25-27, 2021
More than 30 anthropologists from DACH institutions met over two days to discuss the anthropological promises as well as challenges of different multimodal formats.
More-than-human approaches in urban anthropology have convincingly contributed to rethinking the plurality of modes of knowledge, the assemblages and the kinds of actors that constitute our cities. But what do these conceptual interventions do to our ethnographic modes of inquiry?
The talk focused on the environmental issue of airbone waves, and explore how solar heat and environmental noise ‘come to matter’ in contemporary urbanism.
What if in the face of very serious topics we developed conceptual, speculative and material tools, such as games, to find ways of intervening as ethnographers, social scientists or as activists in current design dynamics?
Our Stadtlabor for multimodal anthropology‘s explorations around urban games feature at the exhibition „Open Form neu Denken“ organized by Z/KU at the Werkstatt of Haus der Statistik.
What if the city was not a world in itself, but an interface to multiple, overlapping, often invisible and conflicting worldings?
Hackathon for the production of three ethnographic games, as part of the MA in ethnography (HU Berlin)’s Studienprojekt “The only game in town? Anthropology and the housing and real estate markets in Berlin”
