Nazi Germany's campaign against 'degenerate art' and its persecution of experimental artists pushed the avant-garde in Germany to the brink of extinction. This book examines how the avant-garde came back after the war, reconfiguring its aesthetics in the light of those years.

'Emergency on planet Cape Town' introduces the emotional production of urban space as an important dimension for understanding urban dynamics in post-conflict societies such as South Africa. Drawing on a wide range of geographical, sociological, anthropological and psycho-analytical literature and on an analysis of three contemporary examples of urban transformation projects in the City of Cape Town, the author suggests that current integration politics are failing because of a lack of recognition of the politics of emotion that have shaped the city in the past. What is needed, argues the author, is a spatial politics of reconciliation that addresses both the emotional meaning attached to urban spaces, but also the very concept and image of Cape Town as a European city. engl.

Inspiring, provocative, and encouraging alternatives to the crises which are overtaking our cities. Berlin, Brussels, Florence, London, Paris, Toronto, Zurich - fascinating western metropolises which are all sophisticated icons of international commerce, finance, tourism, though in very different ways. Striking appearances and successful structures are, however, only one side of the reality. On the shadow side, there are the insidious changes which have come about primarily for reasons of quick profit and consumerism; social and ethnic ghettos are on the increase. Yet in all these cities there are forces which are facing up to these supposedly irreversible developments and which must be taken seriously. INURA - an International Network for Urban Research and Action - published Possible Urban Worlds in 1998 to draw attention to contemporary urban renewal. Now they are publishing Contested Metropolis which looks at these seven cities, presenting the most important critics and alternative urban projects.
