The critique phase

We share our critique, frustrations and irritations

Within the dystopian phase we are upholding the specific rules developed for future workshops. The rules provide the best opportunity to create as equal a setting as possible by setting up frames for communication. All statements from the participants are written on wallpaper so they are visible throughout the phase.

 

Process

  • Brainstorm
  • Voting
  • Critique themes
  • Group work (short)
  • Presentation

 

The rules of the critique phase

  • We are consequently negative
  • Only short statements are allowed
  • No discussion
  • All statements are relevant

 

Focusing headline/question

We chose to have two difference headline questions for the workshops. In Denmark we had the headline ‘The city I am afraid of in 2030?’ and in Germany we focused a bit more on mobility asking ‘My mobile life in Munich – What am I afraid of?’.

 

Critique themes chosen by the participants

  • Increased segregation (DK)
  • Lack of trust and communities (DK)
  • No trees, no flowers, no bees (DK)
  • The quality of places and squares are declining AND there is a dramatic increase of conflicts (aggression) in public spaces (D)
  • Dramatic discrepancy between the complexity of mobilities issues and public space issues and the quality of public discourse about it (D)

 

Presentation of group work

Each had to present their dystopia with a silent play. The purpose of the silent play was to give the audience the opportunity to put in their own understanding of the utopia, as it was the idea that the presentations could communicate emotional reactions to the dystopia.
