Who determines which urban areas are used for which purpose?

We are experiencing an increasing regulation of life in public space

and a culture of control is promoted under the guise of security.

In contrast, this exhibition presents the optimistic perspective

of the Open City which welcomes people of all backgrounds,

and where negotiating different usages of space is considered

as a crucial aspect of urbanity.
