Opening

-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Opening
in englischer Sprache

There is always a prescribed hierarchy of space. At opening ceremonies, the convention of a front-facing seating order is assumed. Each person must take their place, and some, in the first rank, are seated right in front of others. In “It Does Matter Where”, Willi Dorner asks: Where do I really want to sit? How do I locate myself? What are my criteria?
