Art, Culture, and Urban Practices (Vol.20)
Anamarija Batista, Szilvia Kovács & Carina Lesky (Eds.)
Rethinking Density: Art, Culture, and Urban Practices (Vol. 20) in the ongoing series from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, considers new perspectives and discussions related to the category of density, which for a long time has been part of urban- planning discourses but recently regained the attention of artists and practitioners from various disciplines. In an interplay of models, coping strategies, and experimental approaches, this publication combines research from cultural studies, artistic research, sound studies, and architectural and urban theory. Agendas presented include the consideration of retroactive architectural design as a means to retrace the historical layers of a city, a proposal for space sharing concepts as instruments for urban revitalization, and a case study on the potential for new sonic social spaces as subversive modes to undermine prevailing power structures. Contributions by Anna Artaker, Anamarija Batista, Marc Boumeester, Meike S. Gleim, Nicolai Gütermann, Gabu Heindl, Improvistos (María Tula García Méndez, Gonzalo Navarrete Mancebo, Alba Navarrete Rodríguez), Sabine Knierbein, Brandon LaBelle, Carina Lesky, Agnes Prammer, and Nicolas Remy.
