English abstract
How do we conceive of a cultural landscape already stratified by diverse and conflicting practices of cultivation? How do we relate to an everyday environment already thoroughly planned and permeated by information? Broad yet pertinent, these questions constituted the point of departure for Land Use Poetics, an arts-based and inter-disciplinary project, addressing issues of spatial documentation and projection. Structured around two intense workshops or field operations in two different North European everyday locations, the Malmö-Lund area in Southeast Sweden and the Isle of Thanet in Kent, England, it brought together a diverse group of researchers, architects and artists with the common objective to explore and challenge spatial practices, technologies and imaginaries from an arts-based point of view. The result is a collection of combined visual and textual essays and reports, in different ways actualizing the everyday drama of land use and the poetics resulting from the attempts to map it out. Maria Hellström Reimer is a visual artist and landscape architecture scholar based in Sweden; Nigel Green and Robin Wilson are…. The volume also presents contributions by Melissa Appleton and Rosy Head, Kerstin Ergenzinger, Rona Lee, Gunnar Sandin, Staffan Schmidt, Meike Schalk and Apolonija Sustercic.
