Abstract:

  • Cultural, social, political and economic are folded into urban landscape. The critical geopolitical study of urban landscape is crucial to understand why and how the cultural, social, political and economic matter. Scale is crucial to understand the histories and geographies of particular places, landscapes and processes. In the presentation I use flexible ‘scale-jumping’ through critical geopolitics as an interpretative frame to indicate simultaneously present connections, flows and circuits in urban landscapes of Tallinn and of other places. The setting is presence but also deliberately post-postmodern when the cyborgs are ‘naturalised’ through the everyday actor-networks between human beings, technology and urban landscape.
