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

Brett Mommersteeg has a PhD at the University of Manchester in Architecture and an MA in Theory and Criticism from the University of Western Ontario. His PhD dissertation followed the making of a building, and explored the challenges of holding together a complex building project across an ecology of actors. As part of the Urban Vibrations project, he is currently focused on how elusive things and disturbances — noise and vibrations — are registered and contested within different kinds of knowledge practices. Previously, he was a Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, and has published on an ecological approach to design, the notion of site, the aesthetics and politics of architecture, and the socio-material practices of hearing a building in the making.
