On Thursday, 6 October 2022, a successful presentation of the two publications took place in our research area Raum Region. Together with the students and teachers of the respective courses, there were insights into how the publications were created and a wine tasting on the topic of women and lakes. In addition to anecdotes about conversations with mayors, there were also stories about the day of action on which the space was appropriated in a feminist way.
Here is a short summary of the publications - if you want to know more about the publications, please click on the respective link.
Public space is permeated by power, relations of domination and norms. The publication shows examples of feminist appropriation of space and looked for creative possibilities of reorganisation. The focus was on the possibilities of self-determined production of a feminist, socially just space. Here you can download the publication. In addition, a website, opens an external URL in a new window was created as part of the course, where, for example, videos of the actions can be viewed.

"No trespassing", "private land" or "bathing only allowed for hotel guests" - the disappointment about the increasing privatisation of lakes in Austria was one of the starting points for the course "About Lakes" and the subsequent dialogue on the future. The results have been incorporated into the publication. Here you can download the publication.
