Abstract

Presented at the international conference Challenge the past / diversify the future, the contributions collected herein deal with ways of challenging accepted historical representations of the City by offering modes of recollection and perspectives that capture both multi-sensory and multi-layered aspects of urban context. As such, they offer new empirically grounded research on the experiences of the inhabitants, both past and present, whether individually or as a collective. With a focus on the city as a space that is performed by a host of actants reaching across time through both materiality and memory, the authors critically address modes through which visual, audible, and multi-sensory representations can challenge, diversify or uproot conventions of urban representation. Four projects. Four takes on making representations of a city.
