Information. Communication. Attention!

Information. Communication. Attention! Exploratory urban research beyond city branding

von Sabine Knierbein, Andrea Rieger-Jandl, Ian Banerjee (Hg.)

Changing relations between information, communication and attention emerge spatially in the course of current urban development processes. In this book various authors present exploratory studies to demonstrate the variety of material phenomena that become visible. A series of case studies on places and processes illustrates controversial entanglements between institutions and actors who occupy new niches in the production of space. Contributions deal with a variety of topics ranging from the impact of city branding strategies to the diverse roles of stakeholders involved. Urban curators, media specialists and branding agencies aim to change both the discursive and the material design of contemporary cities and set themselves apart within the urban competition for attention.
