Wie trotzen die Favelas ihrer Verbannung aus der offiziellen Stadt? Wie begegnen sie der Gewaltherrschaft der Drogengangs, Milizen und Militärpolizei? Kann sich ihre Jugend mit Baile-Funk und Hip-Hop die urbane Bürgerschaft erkämpfen oder verwandelt gar die Pfingstbewegung die Favela in eine Stadt Gottes? Das Buch geht diesen Fragen zu Rios Peripherien anhand des foucaultschen Begriffs des Regierens nach und zeigt damit auch einige blinde Flecken der westlichen Stadtforschung bezogen auf urbane Realitäten im Globalen Süden auf.Weiterlesen

Films and spaces have the capacity to intervene in the nexus of power, violence, and liberation. Sandra Schäfer’s book "Moments of Rupture. Space, Militancy & Film" examines the methods of militant cinema within the decolonisation and liberation struggles of the 1960s and 1970s. It also analyses films produced during the radicalisation of the student movement in West Germany. Using her own cinematic work as a foundation, Schäfer eventually focuses on two "projects" undertaken by Hezbollah in Lebanon. She presents her book in conversation with architect Joseph Rustom.

Film screening: „Yu Gong“ by Daniel Kötter, 13. June 2021

The economic, political and cultural future of globalization is taking shape. The documentary and essay film Yu Gong by Daniel Kötter documents the interdependence of China and Africa and finds many signs of an ever more comprehensive convergence, the forming of “Chinafrika”. Weiterlesen
Mapping as artistic research and as an image- and space-producing practice is at the core of this exhibition. It brings together selected mappings that metroZones has created during its explorations of recent years and juxtaposes them with invited international positions. All of the works presented share a focus on tracing and materializing urban conflict situations and resistance.Weiterlesen

This event addresses the issue of how urban space, everyday life, and working conditions are going to be reformatted by platform economies. What about possibilities to recode "smartified" cities in a public good oriented way? Guests: Bartek Goldman & John Malamatinas (researchers/activists, Berlin vs. Amazon/Make Amazon Pay), Tadeáš Říha (co-editor of "Steel Cities", London/Prague), Scott Rodgers (researcher, Birkbeck, University of London), Kuba Depczyński (curator, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw), Ulf Treger (city/data/explosion, Hamburg) and Elizabeth Caldéron Lüning (researcher, Weizenbaum Institute, Berlin).Weiterlesen
In this second mZ.School as part of the exhibition "Mapping along", we focus on ways of reading maps. We conceive it not as passive but as an active sense-making procedure of reconstructing and deconstructing how a given mapping "speaks to us". The school will open with a public lecture by Sergio Beltrán-Garcia (architect, Mexico City). In the Saturday workshop we will analyse mappings of various formats from different urban and spatial settings. The outcome of the workshop will be discussed with the participation of Monika Streule (urban scholar, Zürich).Weiterlesen
