Title Steal this place : the aesthetics of tactical formlessness and "The Free Town of Christiania"
Author(s) Hellström, Maria
Date 2006
English abstract
The study addresses processes of urban formation and aestheticization with the point of departure in the self-organizing activist community in Copenhagen, "The Free Town of Christiania". The working hypothesis of the study is that an actualization of urban activist practices of representation will lead to a different conception of spatial development than the one presently dominating the field of urban planning.
Swedish abstract
Studien avhandlar urbana förändrings- och estetiseringsprocesser med utgångspunkt i den själv-organiserande Fristaden Christiania i Köpenhamn. Arbetshypotesen är den att ett uppmärksammande av expressiva, aktivistiska urbana representationsformer kan leda till en annan förståelse av rumslig gestaltning än den som nu dominerar planeringsfältet.
