GENDER AND THE CITY
During a five-day workshop, urban designer Pascale Lapalud and sociologist Chris Blache invite interested participants to investigate the public space of Neukölln from a gender perspective. Taking their starting point from the fact that the city is for the most part male created and male occupied, the aim of the workshop is to look at new strategies for female players within the city space.
Post workshop discussion / installation
CestBeauLePouvoir in collaboration with workshop participants will present material collected during the five-day Neukölln case study using the mediums of sound and video recordings, photos and drawings. A parallel workshop took place in the 20th arrondissement in Paris this spring and the discussion will revolve around an examination of the differences and the similarities between the two neighborhoods.
