The city shapes our everyday life. Each person creates an individual knowledge about the city and public space through their own everyday life. This knowledge is influenced by and defined by a variety of factors. Not everyone experiences everyday life in the city in the same way. The right to the city and access to it are distributed differently.

The Department of Site-Specific Art takes a look at public places of personal everyday life, negotiating questions of authority, ownership, experience, and encounter. It engages with urban planning and architecture, misunderstood objects, the skies above, and the community and the individual. What role do all these aspects play in urban scenography?

In their works, the artists interrogate and change the perception of our city. Some projects deal with the relationship of people to their urban environment and the physical and social perception of space. Others deal with loss and absence in everyday (urban) life, and others with the aesthetics and poetry of public space. The artistic strategies are diverse: they employ humor, critique, generate attention, share knowledge, and initiate experimentation. Ultimately, they all ask: Who owns the city?
