Short Films

Between fall 2017 and winter 2019, the Institute of Landscape Architecture of RWTH Aachen University organized and conducted the seminar series “Animating Urban Agricultural Heritage” in cooperation with the Audiovisual Media Center (AVMZ) of RWTH Aachen University. The ten short films produced during the seminar series are dedicated to the documentation, analysis and dissemination of existing examples of Urban Agricultural Heritage. They provide an insight in the historical development, current use and future perspectives of the respective cases.

It is the aim of the conference to collect and showcase further examples of Urban Agricultural Heritage.
