Luxury for all? A critical look at Vienna's social housing
Guest Lecture by Christina Schraml
March 17, 2023
10:00 am CET, Sofahörsaal and online via zoom
Housing is a basic human need. It involves much more than having a
roof over one's head. It is about our vision of society, issues of
co-existence, neighbourhood, collective access to (social)
infrastructure, etc. With a critical look at social housing in Vienna
from Red Vienna to the present, the lecture offers impulses to reflect
on the right to housing and, in a broader sense, the right to the city.
