Abstract

We cannot simply listen to our urban past. Yet we encounter a rich cultural heritage of city sounds presented in text, radio and film. How can such 'staged sounds' express the changing identities of cities? This volume presents a collection of studies on the staging of Amsterdam, Berlin and London soundscapes in historical documents, radio plays and films, and offers insights into themes such as film sound theory and museum audio guides. In doing so, this book puts contemporary controversies on urban sound in historical perspective, and contextualises iconic presentations of cities. It addresses academics, students, and museum workers alike. With contributions by Jasper Aalbers, Karin Bijsterveld, Carolyn Birdsall, Ross Brown, Andrew Crisell, Andreas Fickers, Annelies Jacobs, Evi Karathanasopoulou, Patricia Pisters, Holger Schulze, Mark M. Smith and Jonathan Sterne.

Abstract

What do we know about the urban impoverished areas of the world and the living environment of its inhabitants? How did the urban poor cope with their surroundings? How did they interpret and adopt urban space in order to fight against their position at the periphery of society? This volume takes up these questions and investigates how far approaches of cultural sciences can contribute to overcome the 'exoticization of the ghetto' (Loïc Wacquant) and instead to look at the heterogeneity and individuality behind the facades. It opens new perspectives for the research of poverty and inequalities that do not stop at collective categories.

Abstract

Quer durch alle gesellschaftlichen Bereiche besitzt das Konzept der Prävention ein hohes Maß an Akzeptanz. Das Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit tritt besonders in der kommunalen Kriminalprävention in Erscheinung und konkretisiert sich dort in Form eines Konglomerats aus diskursiver Wahrheitsproduktion und ortsgebundenen Alltagspraktiken. Im Anschluss an Michel Foucault und Algirdas Julien Greimas regt Verena Schreiber zu einem spekulativen Denken über unser Verhältnis zur Prävention an und spürt jenen Zusammenhängen nach, welche die Kriminalprävention zu einem Freiheitsversprechen werden lassen, das aus keiner Perspektive mehr in Frage steht.

Abstract

Seit rund zwanzig Jahren sind Städte zu Laboren neoliberaler Kriminalpolitik avanciert. Das gilt insbesondere für die Metropolen Nordamerikas und Westeuropas, in denen neue staatliche Polizeistrategien erprobt, private Sicherheitsdienste beauftragt und elaborierte Kontroll- und Sicherheitstechnologien zum Einsatz gebracht werden. Erstmals fassen hier ausgewiesene Experten theoretische und empirische Ergebnisse zur sicherheitspolitischen Kontrolle des innerstädtischen Raums, von Sportveranstaltungen, neuen sozialen Bewegungen und sogenannten Randgruppen in vergleichender Perspektive zusammen.

Abstract

Seit den späten 1980er Jahren hat sich in Europa ein Planungsansatz etabliert, der mit quartiersbezogenen Strategien versucht, der sozialräumlichen Segregation in den Großstädten entgegenzuwirken. Die Studie rekonstruiert die Entwicklung dieser Politik von frühen Diskursen bis hin zu politischen Beschlüssen und der Umsetzung in Förderprogrammen und Projekten. Sie zeigt, wie es im Politikprozess zu der jeweiligen Kopplung von Problemdeutung und Instrumentierung kam. Als Beispiele werden die EU-Gemeinschaftsinitiativen URBAN I und II, das Bund-Länder-Programm "Soziale Stadt" und die "Sozialorientierte Stadtentwicklung" in Berlin betrachtet.

Abstract

By drawing together widely dispersed yet central writings, the Berlin Reader is an essential resource for everyone interested in urban development in one of the most interesting and important metropolises in Europe. It provides scholars as well as students, journalists and visitors with an overview of the most central discussions on the tremendous changes Berlin experienced since the fall of the wall. It covers a wide range of issues, including inner city renewal, housing and the local economy, gentrification and other urban conflicts. The book breaks ground in two dimensions: first, by offering also non-German speakers an insight into the very controversial debates after reunification, and, second, by highlighting the ambivalent consequences of Berlins urban transformation in the past decades.

Abstract

This book offers a fundamental contribution to the literature on the creative industries and the knowledge-based economy by focusing on three aspects: urban spaces as key sites of capitalist restructuring, creative industries policies as state technologies aimed at economic exploitation, and the role of networks of aesthetic production in inflecting these tendencies. It simultaneously goes beyond these debates by integrating a concern with the cultural and aesthetic dimensions of the creative industries. As such, the book is relevant to researchers interested in the transdisciplinary project of a cultural political economy of creativity and urban change.

Abstract

It's hard to miss: a new generation of do-it-yourself activists are using the post-Fordist city as a laboratory for social, political, environmental and aesthetic experimentation. Whether in the community garden or in the FabLab, whether in open workshops or at exchange events - everywhere the protagonists question the relationship between consumption and production, problematizing the commodity character of things and the knowledge they contain. This sophisticated illustrated book combines visual expeditions through the new urban spaces of DIY with stimulating time diagnoses. The contributions illustrate that the young urbanites do not rely on opposition but follow the need for "true democracy" by creating (atmo-) spheres of sharing and exchange. They practice collaborative consumption and play public space in the manner of the Commonists.
