Note on an alternative moment for public spaces

Contributing to a thematic issue of L’Observatoire (des politiques culturelles), Marc Armengaud/AWP was asked to write about public space planning and design. These notes try to capture the momentum, favoring large metropolitan public spaces supplied with touches of « alternative culture » : street art, collaborative gardening, urban sports, temporary art, interactive installations, outdoor djaying… Some rejoice with the triumph of the « non standard », others will dismiss « punk-washing » in such crude institutionalization of the late underground culture. But where does it lead, in strategic and political terms? L'Observatoire n°48, July 2016, section directed by Luc Gwiazdzinski, theme 'Geo-Artists'.
