CITY LAB VENICE -
SPACE - PEOPLE - POSSIBILITIES
In our one-week course we critically and playfully explore the politics of public space in Venice, its potentials and restrictions.
Public space is not simply found or even designed, it is lived and made; in a nutshell, public space is emancipatory but simultaneously contested. The particularity of Venice's urban fabric is also reflected in the distinctiveness and variety of the city's public spaces.

In a diverse set of lectures, hands-on workshops, discussions, experiments, Biennale visits, and tours with local and international experts we will enquire into the conditions - possibilities and contestations - that fabricate public space for different groups, locals and visitors, old and young, wealthy and poor.

In collaboration with Poligonal, Berlin. www.poligonal.de

Poligonal - Office for Urban Communication researches on and communicates through urban everyday life, current developments in city planning, and urbanism. The office organizes workshops, city walks, and seminars in which they critically investigate political, social, cultural and architectural urban processes.
