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.

Short bio

Andrew is a professor at the Institute for European Ethnology and co-director of the Stadtlabor for Multimodal Anthropology. His research focuses on the politics of social transformation in contexts of historical upheaval, including post-war international intervention, post-socialism, and urban activism. Increasingly, this research has coalesced around an exploration of the collaborative, ethnographic and political affordances of multisensory and multimodal experimentation.  One prominent example of this is the graphic ethnography project Reclaiming Dita.
