01 Material on: Lefèbvre, The Production of Space
Space is being produced through specific social processes. Unlike other commodities it is at the same time a material object and a medium, in which other commodities and social relations are produced. Thus it permanently reproduces and modifies the social conditions of its own production. It must be understood as a multiple reference point for social struggles: “The city and the urban sphere are thus the setting of struggle; they are also, however, the stakes of that struggle.” (Henri Levèbvre, The Production of Space, 1974)
