WORKING COLLECTIVE DEALING WITH URBAN POLITICS
Member of the Copenhagen based collective openhagen, consisting of artists, academics and activists, who shared a common interest in urban issues and the city as a potential space for change, conflict and community. As a network, openhagen was shaped by the different practices of its members as well as a desire to approach the common from diverse views and understandings. Working within an interdisciplinary field openhagen focused on issues such as: migration, surveillance, segregation (and hereby-related issues of asylum camps), visitation zones, ‘ghettos’, and social centres. openhagen was characterized as an open network of people who, individually and on an everyday basis, worked in different fields but were driven by the need to meet and raise questions – both in theory and in forms of collective action – that everyday practices did not always make time and space for.
