ANOTHER CITY IS POSSIBLE II Anarchist inspired practices in the alternative production of urbanity

Online Lecture Series from 31 May to 05 July 2021

The second part of our planning theory lecture series Another city is possible II: Anarchist-inspired practices in the alternative production of urbanity continues previous discussions on anarchist-inspired practices in the urban context and takes a more in-depth look at urban practices and spaces in which central anarchist principles and values such as cooperation, solidarity, self-organisation, decentralisation, or autonomy can be found. Here, we aim to discuss the question of how the idea of freedom from domination relates to planning and its claim to shape and control spatial development.

The lecture series is organised by the Chair of Planning Theory and Analysis of Urban and Regional Policies of the Institute of Urban and Regional Planning (TU Berlin) and addresses scholars, students, and the interested public.
