Studio-X Johannesburg


Studio-X Johannesburg further deepens Columbia University's longstanding relationship with South Africa and fosters new collaborations with partners from across the African continent. It is a creative research platform that explores alternative imaginaries of the city, with a particular focus on the future of global connection, individual and collective acts of agency and productive collaboration. In the face of the official narratives of apocalyptic urbanization and global crisis, Studio-X Johannesburg cultivates encounters among researchers, urbanists, theorists, filmmakers, artists, activists, architects and policy makers, to explore and give expression to the creative and emergent urban visions and practices of the future.
