REPORTING SPACE, TIME AND EVERYDAY LIFE IN THE DELTA
RADIUS, in collaboration with TU DELFT, is pleased to invite you to the third screening of the itinerant film club REPORTING SPACE, TIME AND EVERYDAY LIFE IN THE DELTA. The film club investigates the natural, social and spatial transitions of The Netherlands before and after the execution of the Delta Works by means of motion pictures.
The documentaries featured in this screening session, titled LIMITS AND INEVITABILITIES, call attention to the past trend of building infrastructure in The Netherlands to debate how much we currently rely on engineering and question our common responsibility in dealing with climate adaptation. Considering past failures and future predictions showcasing that adapting dikes, dams, and polders to climate change effects might no longer be possible, questions on the reconceptualization of the established design traditions and the creation of alternative design pathways emerge.
After the screening of the documentaries there will be a debate with Gaby Langendijk (Deltares), Michele Cerrut (Politecnico di Torino), Ester van de Wiel and Joost Adriaanse (-zee -plaats -werk -land), and Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (RADIUS CCA), which will be moderated by Luca Iuorio (Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, TU Delft).

⌀ Wakers en Dromers (1994) by Annette Apon
⌀ Een Zaak van Niveau (1989) by Louis van Gasteren
