Exhibition-Related Events: The Pop-Up City live

On May 21st, the trendsetting international blog popupcity.net will set down at the citybooks exhibition.

‘The city’ is alive. New initiatives spring through the ground all around, like mushrooms. The blog popupcity.net addresses the city in a broad and expansive way, considering culture and art alongside trends and architecture … On May 21st, Jeroen Beekmans and Joop de Boer, organisers of the famous PechaKucha Nights in Amsterdam, will whisk you through a multitude of ideas, stories and trends that lend colour not only to the city of today, but tomorrow’s city too. Inspired by citybooks, the evening promises to be something extraordinary, with digital excursions through the city, spoken-word blog posts, short opinion pieces and audiovisual refreshments. In short: an evening about the city like no other you’ve ever experienced.
