Imaginations of the Street. European Capital of Culture Events and the Right to the City

Internationaler Workshop unter Leitung von Dr. Derya Özkan (LMU) und Vildan Seckiner (LMU).

02.05.2012 – 04.05.2012

The aim of the workshop is to develop a terminology to discuss the production of streets as political spaces in cities. The ways in which European Capital of Culture events imagine and frame the streets will be investigated with reference to the right to the city and from an interdisciplinary perspective. The European Capital of Culture events will be the laboratory to generate a critical discussion about the commodification of everyday life and identity politics on the streets.

Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Mustafa Dikeç (UCL), Begüm Özden Firat (Mimar Sinan University, Istanbul), Erden Kosova (Istanbul).
