Feminist* Perspectives in Architecture and Spatial Planning
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.
