Control centers are rooms equipped with the latest information systems for monitoring, regulating and controlling things like urban infrastructures. What do these control centers look like? How do electronic media change the communicative action in these centers and the control of the outside space? Two sociologists from the Collaborative Research Center on Refiguring Spaces at the TU Berlin bring perspectives from practice and science into conversation.

With Carsten Jungmann, Leon Hempel, moderated by Arne Janz, David Joshua Schröder, curated by Janin Walter, Stefanie Bürkle, Séverine Marguin
