NUART PLUS 2016 - DAY 1 - Who has, or should have, the ‘right to the city’? wtih Peter Bengtsen

Who has, or should have, the ‘right to the city’?
Peter Bengtsen
 

Henri Lefebvre’s ‘right to the city’ concept provokes us to consider how we might remake the city with the goal of creating more just and ideal societies.In this series of short presentations, each speaker has 15 minutes to shed light on the question of who has, or should have, ‘the right to the city’.

 

PETER BENGTSEN (SE)

Peter Bengtsen is an Art historian and sociologist at the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences, Lund University.

His main area of interest is street art as an artistic and social phenomenon, which he has been writing about academically since 2006.
In 2014, he published a book on the topic titled "The Street Art World".

His research on street art has led to an interest in the "publicness" of public space in general and spatial justice in particular. More recently, he has been working within the field of visual ecocriticism. In this research, Bengtsen investigates how themes like biocentrism, anthropocentrism and anthropomorphism are treated in visual art and how this may influence the relationship between human beings and the environment.

Peter also wrote an essay for Nuart Festival 2014, read it here.
