Symposium: Dialectics Between Urban Imaginaries And Urban Materialities

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (SKuOR) at TU Vienna and the City of Vienna Visiting Professor Prof. D.Phil. Maria Kaika (University of Manchester) host a public symposium aimed at researchers and practitioners in the fi eld of urban theory, urban intervention, social/ spatial practices, political ecology, urban cultures and public space.


The symposium concludes SKuOR’s annual teaching and research theme “Urban culture, public space and resources: Aesthetics and materiality”, which has approached materialities and the changing aesthetics of space as a facet and the outcome of the social production of space.

Keynote speakers from the fi eld of urban theory and urban practice will contribute to a debate
