"We live in fragmented cities. What sort of fragments, hybrids, pixels, borders and territories make up the contemporary city? During these intensive three-week course, we will examine the dynamics of fragmentation: shrinking, fast growing and moving cities, which separate territories within cities into islands that coexist in parallel different speeds. We will explore the ways in which people construct a better life for themselves in a non-utopian age, stripped of such ideological illusion as the social state of multiculturalism; one example is the pursuit of the self-sustainability. How small can a fragment be? Are you, perhaps, the smallest fragment?"
