Authenticity and New Trends in Markets in Aarhus, Paris and London

Most people connect bazaars and markets with experiences that are a bit out of the ordinary; a place with a diversity of people and a variety of exotic or everyday products.

The Creative Class Struggles

The City as a Postmodern Metaphor

The city may be involved in metaphorical strategies in two positions, either - as in William Mitchell's netbased city - as the known category with which we reach out to the partly un-known phenomenon. Or - as in Honoré de Balzac's placebound city - as the partly unknown phenomenon we try to subsume under known categories.

Den netop overståede udvidelse af EU og den aktuelle diskussion af Tyrkiets mulige optagelse har for alvor sat fokus på spørgsmålet om Europas grænser. Trods forskellige politiske dagsordnervil diskussionen om grænser i sidste ende afhænge af, hvad vi forstår ved Europa.
Især er det afgørende, om vi omtaler Europa i kulturelle, i civilisatoriske eller i politiske termer.
