Introductory Theory

Brigitte Felderer, Christina Schraml


Informal practices in the city or: Grey areas of cities.

with Brigitte Felderer und Christina Schraml

We will reflect on various practices of informal urbanism in Vienna - ranging from the early 1900, touching upon the role of informal economies in the city, to the Viennese social movements in the late 60s, and the role of open space (Freiräume) in contemporary Vienna. Key figures and positions in the informal urbanism debate will be introduced. The input will be complemented by movies and various on-site visits.
