This Book is the result of five applied urbanist summer schools on the future of nuclear town of Visaginas, organized by the European Humanities University’s Laboratory of Critical Urbanism annually from 2016 to 2020. We look at space/society relations inherent in nuclear development in order to build a research and design scaffolding for nuclear towns after their productive phase.

Workshops: Renewal, Endurance and Care –– Spaces and Rhythms of Urban Industrial Entanglement

18. 03. 2021 | 16:00 - 24. 09. 2021 | 13:00
Online
This conference investigates urban industrial entanglements as sites of endurance, renewal and change. Instead of thinking in dual categories such as industrial/postindustrial cities, new/old industries, modern/neoliberal subjectivities, and different modes of production, we aim to highlight multiple continuities, transformations, and innovations. We propose to investigate those entanglements as situated relational spaces.
