Artists as planners?: Identifying five conceptual spaces for interactive urban development
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Human Geography.
2017 (English)In: The impact of artists on contemporary urban development in Europe / [ed] Monika Murzyn-Kupisz and Jarosław Działek, Basel: Springer International , 2017, 1, 299-314 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

While artists are often seen as key actors in contemporary urban development, particularly linked with the increased use of culture and creativity in urban development policy, to date they have mainly been considered in only a few limited roles. This chapter explores how artists are engaging with policy-makers and planners in attempts to produce ‘new conceptual spaces’ (Gibson and Klocker 2005) in which urban policy and planning practice becomes a form of knowledge and policy co-production. The chapter explores the dynamics of this interaction to understand its different forms, with a particular focus on how artists inform or affect urban planning imagination. Through the analysis of the state of the art in this field and of a number of projects where artists, policy-makers and planners have interacted in urban development projects we identify and discuss five types of new conceptual spaces for artist-planning interactions. Three of these consider interactions initiated by the formal urban governance structures, whereas two are artist initiated. Taken together these five types represent empirically based alternatives to neo-liberalizing agendas as to how art and artists may realize a more varied role in co-creating the urban future.
