14 Camp for Oppositional Architecture
The “Camp for Oppositional Architecture” looks for possible ways of resistance within the scope of architecture and planning. It will explore and discuss oppositional perspectives that criticize the demands of a capitalist production of the built environment and try to take a non-affirmative part within this powerful contiguity. How could politically relevant and emancipative work in the fields of planning and architecture look like today? Are there any possibilities to challenge and oppose the social order from within the field of planning in a productive way? What are the relevant oppositional stances, practices, strategies or coalitions that might be imagined and realized today?
