Call for collaboration: Public Space Invaders

Public Space Invaders

A collaborative research on collective urban activism [1] is asking for your attention. Seeking for alternatives to administration driven city construction, the focus lies on self-organized projects who practically reshape public space.

To visualize the demographic topology of the practitioners network as well as inherent project patterns, Quatorze [2] develops an online interface [3]. Still in the early alpha phase, it already allows to sketch hypotheses about the network.

Given that the LAA [4] – Lab oratoire Architecture / Anthropologie – is funding the socioscientific part of the research, to continue with the knowledge mapping tool, the PSI crew is especially looking for fundings within the field of network culture and knowledge representation.

If you know anyone, wheather organization, institution or private person, who might be interested in supporting this endeavour, please contact the researchers [5] directly.

Public Space Invaders can be seen live end of May in Barcelona [6] and end of August in Cologne [7].

Merci beaucoup.
