“New forms of citizenship and re-appropriation of public space”

“City Mine(d) is an NGO based in Brussels that has been in operation for over ten years and now has branches in Barcelona and London. Including artists, activists, academics, social organisations and politicians, the group came together around a series of actions in derelict buildings in Brussels in 1995 and formalised itself as an NGO in 1997, dealing with issues arising at the intersection of art and politics in the city. Through a critique of the increasing privatisation of public space in Europe, City Mine(d) describe their aims as searching for new forms of citizenship and working towards the re-appropriation of public space, virtual or otherwise.”
