Spontaneous©ity

Like many other European cities, Vienna is increasingly becoming an (over-)regulated city. Public spaces are more and more controlled and under surveillance. Inner city centres come to look alike - leaving no space for “surprises” or spontaneous actions.

It is about time to take a stand! We are looking for informal ways/processes of (re)making and appropriating the city. We focus on bottom-up processes of urban development that do not (necessarily) comply with official rules and regulations – as alternative paths of developing a city and access to the city. The field Spontaneous©ity compunds projects, actions and publications that deal with this broad topic from various approaches.
