Art Spaces/Commercial Spaces “All department stores will become museums, and all museums will become department stores.” AnDy WArhol A Short Stroll through hiStory: MuSeuMS And depArtMent StoreS, gAllerieS And BoutiqueS When thinking about similarities and differences between art and com- merce, space is a key dimension. In this chapter I am interested in a powerful contemporary practice of organizing space—what we could call a current man- ifestation of the “cultures of display”1—which is widely used for the purpose of presenting art and consumer goods

70 Coworking Space Die Eckkneipe »›bei Herta‹ ist einem Café gewichen, das ganz groß mit vier Buchstaben wirbt: W L A N. Es nennt sich ›Hafen der digitalen Bohème‹. […] Alle Tische sind besetzt. ›Ja muss denn in dieser Stadt wirklich niemand mehr arbeiten gehn?‹ rufe ich verärgert. Achtzehn Köpfe erheben sich von achtzehn Laptops und rufen: ›Wir arbeiten doch!‹« (Kling 2011, S. 142f.). Im gegenwärti- gen Kapitalismus hat sich die Arbeit verflüchtigt: in die virtuellen Weiten post- materieller Produktion, in die Cloud, in die Freizeit, ins Café. Kurz und gut

Due to the fact that a park simultaneously mirrors the ecological as well as the cultural logics of both the present and the future, designing the urban park is always a de- manding task. It follows that this always makes a park a complex representation of the discourse on public space. Political structures and manifold everyday experiences are equally deeply woven into it. It is evident that currently the parameters for public space are undergoing an enormous transformation, and that what was once a locally stable figure is in the process of beginning to

Practising Space To practice space is thus to repeat the joyful and silent experience of childhood; it is, in a place, to be other and to move toward the other. 1 Michel de Certeau alTeriT y as a re acTiOn TO glObalisaTiOn Alterity is in danger. It is a masterpiece in peril, an object lost or missing from our system…2 There is a crisis of alterity in which globalised meaning is threatened by its opposition to the system of exchange. An artistic effort towards radical alterity is a practical one. It combines experience of actual space with strategies of

Explorable Spaces A Conclusion MARTIN REICHE AND ULRICH GEHMANN To conclude this anthology on reality and virtuality, we want to focus on a con- cept that has already been briefly touched in Martin Reiche’s article “The De- struction of Space by Augmentation” in this anthology: the idea is to search for a possible solution to the problem of functionalization of the real world. And there are solutions, especially if you look at the sector of entertainment media, and there, specifically at games. Games have the great potential in not having to follow

Moving Spaces How the Space of Political Struggle for Black Freedom Moves from the Private to the Public Realm TAZALIKA M. TE REH When the Studio Museum in Harlem opened its doors in 1968, it was the beginning of an unprecedented enterprise for many reasons. First of all, in the U.S. there had never been a museum that devoted itself exclusively to the Black voice in the fine arts. Secondly, the museum would respond to current events in the art scene by addressing the community in Harlem and the artists of the African Diaspora.i The formation

Space Complicities Towards Strategies of Inhabiting Exception, Wars and Parks KARIN REISINGER »Before maps the world was limitless.« (Abdulrazak Gurnah 2001: 35) Figure 12.1: Idyllic landscapes in Eifel National Park, April 2010 Photo: author In order to contemplate politics of current space complicities, I will look at a wide range of material. After considering idyllic parks and their inherent violence I progress to the strategies of the literary figure, Bartleby the Scriv- ener, and his impact on the theories of Giorgio Agamben and Gilles Deleuze
