From Trivial to Extremely Serious: We Don’t Even Own Public Space Images Anymore

Abstract This article seeks to uncover several contradictions in images in public spaces in the globalized European city.

The most commonly absent group are the local people: those who actually live in the vicinity.

Die am häufigsten abwesende Gruppe dagegen sind die eigentlich Ortsansässigen.
