Forschung und Lehre

Ethnografic research in cities of digital societies

Johanna Fleischer

Our cities have long since become hybrid spaces in which analog practices and digital signs permanently interpenetrate. Urban action is characterized by the interweaving of analog and digital movements, by a constant translation between online and offline dynamics. Often the power of data remains abstract, reveals itself only fleetingly or hidden. But how do networks, digital devices and algorithms penetrate and change the city (body)? Which digital practices and structures become visible in urban space and how? In Urban Laboratory I, various situations and phenomena of the digital city, body and space are ethnographically analyzed and depicted in individual and group works.
