So, not these fixed gravitational places, but what moves between the designated places.

Politics of Space @ Lab fĂĽr Kunst und Apparate

Publication “Politics of Space” for Lab fĂĽr Kunst und Apparate, Academy for Media Arts.
The segregation processes in media environments are nothing but the enhancement of tendencies manifesting themselves in the “real” space with the creation of the urban ghettos and their counterparts, the (suburban) protected social reservoirs for the upper classes.
These access-controlled residential areas can be found today all over the world, in Third World and in western democracies as well as in the east neo-capitalist countries.They range from heavily protected impenetrable fortresses to retirement towns for well-off pensioners or projects like Walt Disney’s Celebration – an entire residential town (not a theme park).
