Post-totalitarian urban space in Central and South-Eastern Europe is not just about wild development and collisions of identities, vanities, and interests. Heroes of a new urbanity enter the stage – people and organizations that rebuild communities, invent independent culture centres, and produce social architecture and public space. The volume contains a selection of articles published in 2012 and 2013 in the Urban Report column of Zeppelin magazine.

Urban Report is a cross-cultural programme, gathering theories and critical discourses about contemporary urban phenomena in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe. This project was initiated by Zeppelin in 2010 with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute through the Cantemir programme. In 2011 Urban Report consisted of three publications, a website and three DVDs. In 2012 this project was continued and integrated in the structure of Zeppelin magazine, with the support of ERSTE Foundation, under the EE-lab programme.

This publication is available at ERSTE Foundation Library.
