CLAIMING*SPACESFeminist* Perspectives in Architecture and Spatial Planning
International Conference14. & 15. November 2019TU Wien — Part of Archdiploma
The international conference CLAIMING*SPACES. Feminist Perspectives in Architecture and Spatial Planning within the framework of ARCHDIPLOMA 2019, will ask questions about the connections and dynamics that lead to a so-called leaky pipeline for women in architecture and spatial planning.
The pointing out of the lack of feminist actors and perspectives serves as a starting point for the discussion. It is not only about women's difficult career opportunities, but also about whether the people who create the built environment as a group should not be as diverse as those who use it.
CLAIMING*SPACES invites students, teachers, planners and researchers from the fields of architecture and spatial planning as well as interested parties to participate in the discourse in the form of discussions, lectures and workshops and to jointly design feminist positions and tools for a different kind of architecture and spatial planning.
The conference is public & free of charge! Please register at:firstname.lastname@example.org
On the 14th and 15th of November the CLAIMING*SPACES Conference awaits its participants and guests with a broad range of talks, discussions, workshops and performances:

DINNER FOR ALL
The CLAIMING*SPACES Collective is a bottom-up group of students, graduates, teachers and researchers at TU Wien which seeks to foster intersectional feminist perspectives in architecture and spatial planning.
It was founded in 2019 on the initiative of Inge Manka to curate and organise the first CLAIMING*SPACES Conference which deals with the following questions:
→ How can mechanisms of exclusion be uncovered and deconstructed? → How can feminist architecture/ planning/research be brought into the main discourse as a productive implicitness? → How can discriminating forms of knowledge production and historiography be questioned, newly phrased and done differently? → How can feminist vocational practices induce much needed changes in planning and building?
We, the collective of CLAIMING*SPACES, invite students, teachers, architects/urban planners and researchers to participate in discussions, lectures and workshops and conceptualize intersectional_feminist positions and tools together, to create different forms of architectural and spatial planning.
Members of the CLAIMING*SPACES Collective are Sarah Bernhard, Viktoria Edler, Melanie_Mo Hartmann, Petra Hirschler, Lauren Janko, Bernadette Krejs, Inge Manka, Susanne Mariacher, Annalisa Mauri, Birgit Miksch, Maria Myskiw, Max Ostermann, Karin Reisinger, Sabina Riß, Leon Scheufler, Veronika Wladyga. (October 2019)
In order to ensure that the conference is accessible for as many people as possible, we assembled a Queer_Feminist Glossary corresponding to the fields of Architecture and Spatial Planning.
