book launch: re:imagine your city—rethinking urban paradigms

On November 17, we invite you to the launch of the book re:imagine your city—rethinking urban paradigms, followed by informal networking and drinks at the unique community meeting point Kiezraum.

In a world characterized by rapid change and uncertainty, the book examines these changing urban environments and offers fresh, diverse perspectives on public spaces. The publication presents a curated selection of contributions collected through an open call, including essays, articles, interviews, illustrations, and photographs. These contributions explore the topics of commemoration and heritage, city planning and gentrification, migration and post-pandemic changes, solidarity and new spatial practices.

The idea for the book emerged from the educational program reimagine your city (2022-2023), which explores interactive and creative practices for empowering young people and fostering their engagement in the sociocultural transformation of cities. The 200-page publication was developed by re:imagine your city and published by SHIFT BOOKS in September 2023. The project was funded by the Federal Foreign Office in the framework of the Eastern Partnership program.

Books can be acquired during the event or ordered online
