Amplifier and Complement
About the Relationship between Urban Planning, Artistic Practices, and Cultural Institutions
Isabel Maria Finkenberger, Eva-Maria Baumeister, Christian Koch (Eds.)
Increasingly often, new protagonists from art and culture are becoming involved in processes of urban development and participate in unconventional ways in the design of urban spaces. This is no coincidence, because many of the urban development challenges of today require abilities that go beyond traditional planning tools.
What is the relationship between urban planning, artistic practices, and cultural institutions: Do they merely complement each other or do they amplify each other mutually? This volume gathers perspectives from different disciplines that understand changing urban practices, as well as constantly adjusting hierarchies and power relationships, as an opportunity to think differently about places, institutions and those involved, about forms of organisation and action.
