ABC – urban alphabet
(Alphabet: Basic elements in a system that can be combined to form complex units)
What is a city? What does it consist of? What distinguishes it from a simple accumulation of buldings? How has the city changed, how will it change? Is Frankfurt a city? What does the right to a city mean? And what do we have to do with it?

From TINA and TATA! or: Monoculture destroys the foundation
(TINA (There Is No Alternative) was a slogan of the conservative British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whose policy has significantly promoted deregulation (of the markets) and privatization of state-owned enterprises / TATA! = There Are Thousands Of Alternatives!)
Who is the city for? Who do we mean when we say we? Who has visibility, possibility? Who has access, participation in what constitutes the city? What structures are invisible to some and insurmountable to others? Where are brutality and complexity of the global economy reflected in architecture and urban planning?

Chapter 5 - Friedrich Ebert Anlage
140 soccer fields or half of Monaco
Currently, more than 1 million square meters of commercial space is vacant in Frankfurt, and the trend is rising. How does this happen? Who benefits from it? Why are there still construction sites everywhere? What dangers lurk behind these conditions? Where are the opportunities hidden? Where does innovation take place? How do socially productive dynamics emerge? Who is afraid of new perspectives?
14:45-15:45 Anna Scheuermann
Chapter 6 - Willy Brandt Platz
I live here, I’m not a tourist and other problems
Who lives in the city? Who owns the city? Who sells the city? What is allowed? That which happens unnoticed? Who can buy the city? What does constructive opposition look like? Is there creative navigation through bureaucracy? What scope for action does collective organization open up?

Possibilities of a relationship with the future
What is representative and where is it presented? Where does everything else take place? Is education only for children? Isn’t culture for everyone? How are educational culture and cultural education related? Can something be an anchor point and process-oriented at the same time? What are interfaces? Where are edges along which new paths can be taken?

Buena Vida Social Hub
(A hub defines a central place where connections converge and new directions can be taken)
