The "Stadtlabor for Multimodal Anthropology" aims at developing ‘an anthropology of/as urbanism’. It critically explores governmental, everyday, insurgent and more-than-human practices of city making. It also experiments with ethnography as a more-than-textual, multimodal practice.

About us

The Stadtlabor is a forum for academic and non-academic researchers interested in practices, promises, processes and problems of city-making.

We are interested in developing ‘an anthropology of urbanism’, paying particular attention not only to the modern urban design discipline and its role in governmental formations, but also to insurgent, everyday and more-than-human ways in which cities are being re-designed and re-made.

Following a ‘near ANT’ approach, we aim to explore socio-material articulations and onto-epistemic controversies surrounding current urban transformations.

The Stadtlabor is also a space where to experiment with what a multimodal urban anthropology might involve, that is, one that resorts to material productions, in order to reflect and intervene in processes of city-making.

Accordingly, the Stadtlabor functions – at times – as a workshop or a studio, where more-than-textual projects are developed in collaboration with different urban actors.
