No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal retail handling; Still Gift Quality. English translation on facing pages. The city is our factory a pictorial essay in 158 drawings by Christoph. -------The Hamburg artist tells in six chapters a rhizomatic story of the urban: from the primordial ooze to the " right to the city " movement in Hamburg 2009. With the watercolor pen, he traces the landscape of concepts Henri Lefebvre, those "revolution of the cities," which saw looming in the 1970s, the French philosopher. In the post-industrial age, according to the thesis, the city itself becomes a central production site. In the urban fabric subcultures, artists, designers now play a significant role as producers of collective spaces, as the inventor of places of desire. In a society that is increasingly difficult to distinguish in the passion and work, privacy and professionalism, is the battle for the city to a struggle for the means of production, to a struggle for the right to the city. But what political possibilities ask Christoph Schäfer, could produce between a latte and open self-organization in the future? What alternatives can be developed to the neoliberal urbanization model that continued black holes produced: financial crises, spilled city archives, marketing idioms? A giant, singing Pitbull is in "The city is our factory," the answer, " Señoras y Señores ! the cities of the multitude will be places of passion or, Ladies and Gentlemen, they will be nothing! "
