Stadiums are more than sports venues. They are key areas of public space; as meeting places for people, they attract the masses and also play an important role in the political and economic environment. Under the title "Choreography of the Masses. Stadiums as sociopolitical instrument” Volkwin Marg holds a lecture on Thursday, 25 January 2018, from 5.30 pm onwards at the NORDAKADEMIE, Hochschule der Wirtschaft in Elmshorn.
As architectural creator of significant stadiums, including venues in South Africa and Brazil, Poland, China, Ukraine, Russia and Germany, the gmp founding partner spans the bridge from the sacred background of antique competition culture to today's politicization and commercialization of sport.
