Spaces of Hope – an interview with Cindi Katz
1 July 2020
This broadcast was framed by the transnational Summer School Spaces of Hope, organized by Claudia Mock and her colleagues at the Collaborative Research Centre Re-figuration of Spaces at the Technical University of Berlin.
Cindi Katz is the executive officer of the Ph.D. Program in Earth and Environmental Studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her research focuses, among other things, on social reproduction and production of space place and nature, everyday life and the environment, children’s geographies, the privatization of the public environments, the intertwining of memory and history in the geographical imagination and geographically dispersed but interconnected sites of global capitalism. If you want to know more about her critical methodology of “countertopography” watch her keynote at the HKW which can be found here.
Isabel Bredenbröker is an anthropologist and filmmaker. She recently completed her PhD on the materiality of death in a Ghanaian Ewe community with Goethe-University Frankfurt. Her first short film Now I Am Dead is a collaboration with Philipp Bergmann and was recently featured in the program of the German International Ethnographic Film Festival (GIEFF). Isabel is a core team member of the trans-disciplinary platform K which is currently producing This house is not a home, a collective and experiential format at Lothringer 13 Halle in Munich.
