Art, Urban Commons and Social Change

  • Tijen Tunali Aarhus University


The discussions of urban commons involve us in breaking up the totalizing notion of those dominated by power as passive consumers and reconsidering how urban life is made as creative production, constantly appropriating and reappropriating the products, messages, and spaces for expression. The common acts of engagement and reorganization are based on re-appropriations and redeployments of the dominant image economy and hierarchical distribution of space experienced in the city.  Hence, they are also a part of the struggle for the reclamation of public space wherein wrongly privatized space is returned to its rightful owners.  The special issue “Art, Urban Commons and Social Change” discusses how art in the urban space creates unmediated spaces and instances of emancipated subjects.
