Friction Atlas x Meeting Grounds Public Panel Discussion

With guest speakers: Giuditta Vedrame and Paolo Patelli (Friction Atlas), Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos (legal scholar, theorist and artist), Recetas Urbanas (architecture collective) and Heleen de Hoon (theatre practitioner and dramaturge).

In many countries around the world, public places, sites of living and work have been marked by new rules and regulations. Colored circles, lines and arrows show us how to move, the path to follow, where and how to stay, redesigning our mobility and our daily interactions.
With the idea of ​​starting a reflection on the use of public space – which is now increasingly regulated, limited and reduced – since 2014 Paolo Patelli and Giuditta Vendrame, through the project Friction Atlas collect, classify and make visible the laws, rules and devices that regulate the way people move, meet, use and gather in public space.
Within the framework of Meeting Grounds we will discuss the conditions of performativity and public space, law and protocols and art and theory with Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos (legal scholar, theorist and artist), Recetas Urbanas (architecture collective) and Heleen de Hoon (theatre practitioner and dramaturge).
Join us on Thursday 1 October from 17.00-19.30 for this public panel discussion hosted at Onomatopee and as part of the Meeting Grounds Edition #2 Strijp-S public programme.
This event will be held physically in the Onomatopee space, as well as digitally via Zoom and Youtube.
Please note that places for the physical event are limited, so places must be reserved by emailing
This event has been made possible thanks to the support of Cultuur Eindhoven.

Santiago Cirugeda – Recetas Urbanas
After 7 years of individual work, Santiago Cirugeda created in 2003 the Recetas Urbanas architectural studio continuing the development of subversive projects in different areas of the urban reality that would help to cope with the complicated social life of it. From systematic occupations of the public spaces made with containers until the construction of prosthesis for facades, backyards, roofs and empty lots. All of these done, through a negotiation process between the legality and illegality, as a way to remember the enormous control we are subjected.

Meeting Grounds Edition 2: Strijp-S

Strijp-S is a hybrid space that embodies the individual and collective cultural histories and heritages of Eindhoven’s industrial past, whilst also existing as a zone that represents the technological and design-focussed future of the city, making it both a compelling and complex composite public domain that bridges the public and private, the tangible and intangible and space and non-space.

The combination of public places, green spaces and open courtyards, artist ateliers, design studios and luxury shops and cafes that make up Strijp-S today, constructs it as an almost perfect case study for urban renewal and gentrification of the city. Whereas the industrial landscape of the area makes its workers’ pasts almost unforgettable, leading us to question who or what exactly makes up the “public” of this public space.
Meeting Grounds Edition #2 seeks to examine the site of Strijp-S as a composite public space that bridges public and private, space and non-space and embodies generation after generation of tangible and intangible heritage. Through a free public programme of workshops, lectures and events and a subsequent zine-publication we want to explore Strijp-S as a site of industrial-cultural heritage, to investigate the multiple and often erased histories of the area alongside understanding Strijp-S as a space of innovation and cultural activity. For Edition 2 we wish to understand how multiple narratives, realities and histories can sit side-by-side in one singular space, in turn examining the process of a designed cultural heritage through the lens of public space. We therefore ask: who is given access to shape and inform this place and space for the city and imagine it’s cultural past and future?
To embark on this active research and presentation we draw from ideas of cultural heritage and urban commons to look at topics of space and non-space, shared cultural history, collective ownership, city integration and branding and changing the urban landscape of Eindhoven. To explore Strijp-S’s hazy relationship with public space and its long and complex tangible and intangible cultural history within the city of Eindhoven
