The democratic culture considers the public spheres as the sources for the democratic process within a society. Publics are created by meeting and inter-acting of individuals in interest- or expertise-driven communities. Their agreements and conventions, assemblies and representation systems produce the public organism in which we live. „Being public“ is the subject of GLOW 2009 focusing - in the choice of artists and designers, parcours, locations and works - on the changing qualities of public spheres. Embodiment of the public spheres is urban public space as an open space without any access restrictions and as the space of open discourses and free shaping of collective opinions. Observing the ongoing changes in appearance and meanings of public space, gazes are directed to the fragile individual bonds to geographic locations and communities, to the segmentation of the public space by its commercialized use and to the missing link between urban planning and citizen interests. Present is a need for discussion and action, which is essential for the sustainable progress of democratic culture. To generate a public for these questions GLOW 2009 is an open source for collective experiences and a platform for shared discussions about present and future qualities, including their responsibilities and challenges.
