Prof. Dr. Ina Dietzsch interviewed by Carsten Wilhelm (Interfaces numériques Volume 11 - No. 1 | 2022)

Vinzi-Dorf in Marburg

Prof. Dr. Manfred Seifert has been providing scientific support for the "Vinzi-Dorf Marburg" project since January 2022 and is a member of the project advisory board. He was inspired to do so by his closer involvement with the Marburg homeless project and the exhibition "Who's next?" at the Architekturmuseum der TU München in the Pinakothek der Moderne and its catalog.

Waterworlding is an umbrella for a wide range of events and activities around an ethnographic/cultural-theoretical approach to water in teaching and research at the Institute of European Ethnology and Studies in Culture and Historyat Marburg University in Germany. We are currently building up presentation forms for activities and research output on PECE Hamburg and STS infrastructures. In terms of content, the interest in Marburg primarily lies on the exploration of water as a technological experience and here especially on digital water.
