about

This volume documents a series of events that took place in the summer of 2008 as part of the Summer on the Elbinsel festival in Wihelmsburg, Austria, which boasted a diverse group of international artists, including Critical Art Ensemble, Mike Davis, Lisa Heldke, Dan Peterman, Susan Leibovitz Steinman and Thomas Heyd. Comprising two volumes, this edition questions the contemporary grasp of the culture/nature dichotomy. Examining the functionality of the master plan in the quest for a socially and ecologically fair future, the book presents as alternatives cooperative planning processes, artistic interventions and philosophical reflections. Community gardening, gentrification processes and citizens' participation are among the themes that the participants in this timely project address, in their aim to use sustainable artistic methods to reflect an urban response to climate change.
