Kurzbeschreibung: 

The editors Mathilda Rosengren (University of Cambridge) and Josefine Sarkez-Knudsen (University of Copenhagen) in conversation with Thomas Hauck (University of Kassel) and the authors.

In the past years, the transiency of European city-making and dwelling has become increasingly hard to disregard. This urban flux calls for a methodological rethinking for those professionals, social and natural scientists, artists, and activists, with an interest in the processes of remaking and reclaiming urban space. With a practical and empirical emphasis, this anthology brings forth a variety of perspectives on urban appropriation strategies, their relation to public space-making, and their implications for future city development – exploring how ideas and practices of appropriation inform and relate to cultural narratives, politico-historical occasions as well as socio-ecological expressions.

With contributions by: Malte Bergmann & Laura Kemmer, Greta Colombo & Lorenza Manfredi, Jan Edler, Natalie Fari, Matthew Gandy, Anette Geiger & Stefanie Hennecke, Rabea Haß, Toby Austin Locke, Ralf Pasel-Krautheim, Tilman Reinhardt & Beatrice Walthall, and Anja Schwanhäußer.
With the kind support from: Rethinking Urban Nature (European Research Council), the Patrum Lumen Sustine Foundation and the Åke Wibergs Stiftelse.
