Rethinking Density: Art, Culture and Urban Practices considers new perspectives and discussions related to the category of density, which for a long time has been part of urban-planning discourses and is now regaining the attention of artists and practitioners from a number of different disciplines.
The issues discussed include the consideration of retroactive architectural design as a means to retrace the historical layers of a city, a proposal for space-sharing concepts as instruments for urban revitalisation processes, and a case study on the potential for new sonic social spaces as subversive modes to undermine prevailing power structures.
