Jan Redzisz

cultural analyst with a background in ethnography

His current ongoing project introduces elements of Systems Theory into innovation and urbanism agenda.

jan
He will explore Christiania from its inner-creativity perspective to document its overall potential in incubating new, alternative lifestyles and solutions, as well as possible ways for them to positively influence innovation exchange with non-utopian communities.

In order to understand what enables that exchange, Jan will look into Christiania's DIY spirit, use of new media, freedom of expression, and overall resourcefulness.
Jan's new way of picturing communities as clusters and hubs could help Christianites see their new hidden roles on the innovation landscape, locally and globally.

FREJ HAAR

Bachelor of Integrated Conservation of Built Environment

I am a bachelor student in Integrated Conservation of Built Environment from the University of Gothenburg.
Frej

A year ago, I wrote a thesis in history of built environment about Autogena on Dyssen. I am now returning to Christiania to write my bachelor thesis.
In this thesis I am interested in the Christianitesí own interest of preservation. This will involve interviewing residents about their feelings in relation to not only the built environment, but also less tangible things like sense of place identity and community.

Together, we will walk around in Christiania and in a sense, map out places of interests and feelings. My goal is to be able to hold a workshop about the work I have gathered in the later part of April, or at a later time. If the workshop is possible, the result of that would be a fanzine constructed entirely by residents.

I hope to participate in community meetings and I wish that this becomes a thesis where I can exchange information with you, instead of falling into the all too common trap for research: only benefitting the academic sphere more than local interests.

Coming from a conservation perspective, I lean towards cultural geography and subjective mapping. Zine-making has been a hobby for me for many years, and I would love to be able to incorporate it into my thesis.
I have a background in political activism (transgender rights, anarchism, environmental issues) and I am also a spoken word poet.
If you are interested in being interviewed for the thesis, please do not hesitate to contact me, either through email
(gusbidfr(snabel-a)student.gu.se)
or send me a text (+46709656638).

Jeg taler dansk!

Or you could just come knock on my door! I am always there with coffee.
