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.
