Kurzfassung englisch:
Through an exploration of emancipation in recent processes of capitalist urbanization, this
book argues the political is enacted through the everyday practices of publics producing
space. This suggests democracy is a spatial practice rather than an abstract professional field organized by institutions, politicians and movements.

Public Space Unbound brings together a cross-disciplinary group of scholars to examine
spaces, conditions and circumstances in which emancipatory practices impact the everyday
life of citizens. We ask: How do emancipatory practices relate with public space under `postpolitical conditions´? In a time when democracy, solidarity and utopias are in crisis, we argue that productive emancipatory claims already exist in the lived space of everyday life rather than in the expectation of urban revolution and future progress.
