In and Out of Place IIn and Out of Place I:
Urban Experiences of Exclusivity, Exclusion and Discrimination

During the winter semester 2014/2015, the lecture series discussed urban experiences of exclusivity, exclusion, and discrimination through the lens of different groups, such as homeless, gangs, different sexual groups, urban explorers and people living in slums. The sessions explored how these groups perceive cities and how they interact through acts of inclusion, of exclusion and through physical, political or social access barriers to particular urban places, their practices and networks. Furthermore, “In and Out of Place” aimed at shedding light on the consequences these access barriers might have, e.g. marginalizing and isolating certain groups, fuelling social and economic conflicts in cities and creating urban places of segregation, discomfort, anger or fear.
