Who this event is for
C216, Clerici Building, Headington Campus
Coordinated by Lorenzo Tripodi – (Tesserae Urban
Social research) and Manuela Conti (ogino:knauss).
This workshop will introduce researchers to
the toolset of participative methodologies developed by Tesserae http://www.tesserae.eu. Tesserae is a platform to connect critical multidisciplinary research, education, art,
communication and project development in the urban, territorial and social
fields. Based in Berlin and a partner in the CoCreation research
project, Tesseræ works with local communities, independent and non-for profit
organisations, as well as local, national and European
institutions. Exercises in Urban
Reconnaissance is a methodology developed over twenty years of
activity by the oginoknauss media collective and produced by Tesserae. It is a
toolbox for disentangling urban complexities. The online device takes
the form of a collection of sixty-four different definitions of the word
“city”, each based on a diverse aspect or disciplinary approach. The workshop will be structured as follows.
Urban Reconnaissance methodology will be introduced and discussed in the
context of doing participatory research and
will then think how it can be applied in the context of our current research
interests, e.g in identifying key aspects of the socio-spatial
situation of particular neighbourhoods.
Finally we will explore the use of one part of the tool kit, the “onion map”
