Assembling the multitude: questions about agency in the urban environment

Brantz, Dorothee (2017)

In recent years, urban history has witnessed an expansion of actors. Historians have substantially and continuously extended their perspectives when it comes to examining the forces that drive urban developments. This expansion to an ever-broader range of human and increasingly also non-human actors (e.g. animals, technological systems and resources such as water) has opened up many new venues ...

Schönig, Barbara (2007)

The memorial landscape which emerged in Berlin after 1989 has been widely observed by the national and international public as well as by scholars from various disciplines. The reason is obvious: After 1990, German society had to develop a new identity, that of the “Berliner Republik.” Because memorials have an important impact on the so-called Funktionsgedächtnis (Assmann 1999; i.e., the part...

[Book Review:] The Politics of Urban Cultural Policy: Global Perspectives, edited by Carl Grodach and Daniel Silver, London: Routledge, 2012

Novy, Johannes (2013)

Urban cultural policy is one of those elusive terms for which there seems to be no definitive definition. An understanding of what urban cultural policy is and does is not only made ambiguous by the complex character of the notion of culture itself but also by the fact that it is often difficult to demarcate cultural policy as a distinct policy domain. Cultural policy’s boundaries cannot simply...

Im Auftrag des Staates - die französische Porzellanmanufaktur Sèvres zwischen politischer Weisung und künstlerischer Autonomie (1938 bis 1963)

Topp, Marlen (2018)

Die staatliche Porzellanmanufaktur Sèvres, ein Pfeiler französischen Kunsthandwerks, durchlief seit ihrer Gründung 1740 immer wieder erfolgreiche wie auch schwierige Phasen. Den wohl gravierendsten Eingriff in der Geschichte der Manufaktur markiert die nationalsozialistische Besetzung Frankeichs und somit des Unternehmens. Zwischen 1940 und 1944 musste Sèvres nicht nur für immense Aufträge der ...

Identities in transit

Merrill, Samuel (2015)

This article analyses urban railway infrastructures as landscapes in order to reveal their role as constructions and constructors of collective and individual identities. It does this by introducing the notion of 'identities in transit', a rhetorical category that problematises the tendency to consider the nexus of urban infrastructure and identity formation only during discrete moments and in ...

The Hôtel Drouot as the stock exchange for art. Financialization of art auctions in the nineteenth century

Fuchsgruber, Lukas (2017)

Throughout historic developments, the publicly ascertained and published price of an artwork repeatedly served as a reference point for art theoretical discussion. Particular importance was attached to the auction sale price, since this financial evaluation of art was of such a public nature. While there is a long history of these ideas about the pricing of art, there are notable times of trans...
