Vom Lessing-Denkmal bis zum Landwehrkanal

Christopher Heidecke

Wirklichkeit und insbesondere Städte unterliegen einem steten räumlichen sowie zeitlichen Wandel. Dieser Beitrag ist ein Auszug einer Masterthesis, welche unter anderem mittels Lucius Burckhardts Methode der Spaziergangswissenschaft interpretativ-phänomenologisch den Berliner Potsdamer Platz untersucht und versucht, die planerische wie organisationale Entwicklung als Ausgangspunkt der Betrachtung für die hiesige Raumkonstitution zu setzen. Anhand einer dichten Beschreibung und zahlreichen Fotocollagen soll es den Leser:innen ermöglicht werden die wahrgenommene ›Qualität‹ des ehemaligen Mauerraumes und der vorhandenen ortsproduzierenden Maßnahmen im Zusammenspiel mit dem leiblichen-forschenden Subjekt sinnlich nacherfahren zu können.

Five days in a Berlin School: Participatory workshop for the development of a Progressive Web Application

Dr. Ludovica Tomarchio | Prof. Dr. Angela Million | Dr.-Ing. Anna Juliane Heinrich | Dr. Ignacio Castillo Ulloa

The article describes the basic principles and some key exercises of the five-day participatory workshop that took place in Berlin in November 2022 with a group of young students. The aim of the workshop was to develop a progressive web application together with the young Berliners, which will later be used by the same students to create mental maps, a research method employed to record the routines, paths and experiences of young people in (their) spaces.

Visualizing Narrative Spaces

Claudia Mock | Simone Rueß

On the 22nd of November, 2022, Claudia Mock from the Methods-Lab of the CRC 1265 organized the hybrid lecture and workshop “Visualizing Narrative Spaces” with the visual artist Simone Rueß, who shared insights into her work, which deals with the inscription of politics into urban structures, home-making practices and memory processes within biographical narrations, contextualized through drawings, animations, objects and installations. In this blog post, Simone Rueß reflects on the hybrid workshop, which was conceived as a performative narrative in which diverse participants from various disciplines developed individual visual approaches in a collective action.

Real Estate Fata Morganas: Cairo’s Urban Futures as an intersectional Mirage

Mennatullah Hendawy | Prof. Jörg Stollmann

This blogpost uses the phenomenon of the fata morgana – mirage – to illustrate the dynamics of real estate advertisements for exclusive housing developments in Cairo. In doing so, we investigate some of the ways in which public media and advertising create a display of the urban that does not reflect the lived social, spatial, and economic reality of the majority of the population. At the same time, this urban visual is produced and shaped by the intersectional dynamics of embedded societal norms.

A Visual Experiment at the CRC

Dr. Séverine Marguin | Dr. David Joshua Schröder

The CRC 1265 is currently experimenting with visual methods of analysis. This blogpost presents one such experiment. In this experiment, preliminary research findings were transformed into graphics by a designer, thus setting in motion an image-based process of discovery and reflection. It is shown how such a short-term collaboration between social science and artistic design has been carried out and what kind of potential it brought with it.

Kirschen, Politik und Refiguration von Räumen

Dr. Linda Hering | Lara Espeter

Gästen zeigt man gern etwas Besonderes und je nachdem wo ihre Interessen liegen, rangieren die ausgewählten Orte von Museen, Shoppingmalls, historischen Innenstädten, beeindruckenden Naturreservaten bis hin zum neuesten 5-Sterne-Restaurant. Unsere Gastwissenschaftler*innen aus Chile interessieren sich beispielsweise dafür, wie sich die Obstproduktion in Deutschland von der in ihrer Heimat unterscheidet. Aus diesem Grund haben wir, das SFB-Projekt A03 „Waren und Wissen II“ in Kooperation mit dem DFG-Projekt „Apples and Flowers“[1], mit Beatriz Bustos [2] , Patricia Retamal und Raúl Contreras einen Besuch auf einen Obstbauernhof unternommen.

Digital care: How social support during the Covid-19 pandemic shifted to the digital and our worries became “surplus value”

Daniela Krüger | Robert Vief | Prof. Dr. Talja Blokland | Nina Margies

This blog post shows that the Covid-19 pandemic and contact restrictions changed the how and where of exchanging social support with others shifting increasingly to the digital. This may be in part a result of the Berliners’ attempt to create a new private outside. Krüger et al. argue, however, that this new private relies on an illusio of privacy. Especially during the pandemic, they hold, our worries might have become “surplus value” in an unregulated and intransparent market of data on and by us.
