“It means learning to select each segment of this so-called irreversible system, putting a question mark over each of its supposed indispensable connections, and then testing in more and more detail what is desirable and what has ceased to be so.” (Latour)
While we hope for a soon ending of the extraordinary conditions we’re in, we search for spatial strategies for the after. Bruno Latour’s questionnaire serves as an impetus to question the ‘back to normal’: instead, we want to take a critical look at the new realities of the crisis as a testing ground, mapping the spatial and lived alternatives and thus elaborating an inventory of potentials for the post-Corona city. Students from UdK built on their own experience during the Corona crisis and question aspects like working, living, living in the city, …: what spaces have gained importance? What potentials were discovered during the crisis? How did the crisis make spatial inequalities visible? Who has been excluded or isolated?
