The editors Nikolaus Hirsch and Markus Miessen invited protagonists from the fields of architecture, art, philosophy, and literature to reflect on the single question of what, today, can be understood as a critical modality of spatial practice. The six editions of "Critical Spatial Practice" include contributions of Chantal Mouffe, Beatriz Colomina, Keller Easterling, Mark von Schlegell and Eyal Weizman. At the Kunstverein in Hamburg Hirsch and Miessen will point at the question and problematic of whether architecture and our physical environment can still be understood as a res publica.
