Be Reasonable, Demand the Impossible
Presentations by: Dr. Susan Hansen (AU/UK) and Laima Nomeikaite (LT/NO)
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’.
Dr. Susan Hansen is Convenor of the Visual Methods Group and Chair of the Forensic Psychology Research Group in the Department of Psychology at Middlesex University, London; Convenor of Art on the Streets, an annual symposium held at the Institute of Contemporary Art; and serves on the Editorial boards of the academic journals Street & Urban Creativity and the Nuart Journal.
Laima Nomeikaite is a researcher, human geographer and urban planner. She works at the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU) in Oslo where she is researching on street art as heritage. In recent years she has worked on a variety of projects related to culture, heritage research and urban planning.
