From Underdogs to Schickeria: The Right to the City

FOAM is an interdisciplinary and independent student initiative with the aim to discuss

topics related to architecture without pictures.

We are interested in gathering the widest possible variety of contributions, from different disciplines. FOAM welcomes essays, poems or any kind of soundtracks on our first topic: ‘From Underdogs to Schickeria: The Right to the City’.

The proposed material will be evaluated according to the baselines of the topic. The contributions can be in any language, but the final publication has to be also in English. The FOAM will inform the selected participants and will also help them to review and adapt the material to the standard format for final publication. The digital publications will be linked to an event. A space where students will read or perform their work, where they will also be able to answer questions. The event will be recorded to create a podcast that will be shared online. This format will be tested in Munich but aims to achieve future international collaborations as it is part of the long-term plan.

Please send us your abstract (maximum 300 words or a short demo-tape of your soundtrack) with your idea till the 6 March 2020 to
