Who are we, the city? Can we find the elements of an egalitarian democratic imaginary and a non-hegemonic conception of ‘we’ by thinking the instances of resistance in Berlin and Istanbul together?
How do residents of Berlin and Istanbul experience, express and resist the physical, political and normative reordering of their cities? Over the course of three days, we invite practitioners and theorists of the urban – activists, cultural producers and scholars alike – to explore various forms of knowledge-production through moderated talks, panels and installations.
