The Quality of City Life Event 4

Metropolitan-Narratives and Integration – In text, image and film

The concept of the metropolis was coined in the great works of art and literature. Likewise, the attractiveness of large cities is based on the media communication of representations and ideas. The event critically examines the emergence and function of city narratives. How did the concept of the metropolis arise? How do narratives constitute opinions about cities? What kind of content is conveyed? From whom and through which channels? How do these narratives and opinions/images define the cities in relation to social conflicts, integration and social space? Can these narratives contribute to a more harmonious society? The event examines this by means of modern urban narrative as well as the aspects of different representations of the urban space in film, photography and literature.
