What does “succession” mean for plants that grow “outside the lines” in urban spaces? What does “secession” mean for city residents surrounded by the dual forces of regulations and the motivation for ecological city living? Meet some of the team behind Die Wiener Sukzession in this great interview with skug, written in preparation for their participation in the skug street festival this past June.
"From the perspective of the idea of participation: If there is a hole in the public space or in the surface of the public space, then this encourages you to deal with it and perhaps also worry about it. Our idea was also that people are moved all around to deal with this hole, and possibly also to get in touch with each other. We want to try to take the function of public space away a bit from the fact that it is only used as a from-A-to-B space, and instead deal with the space in between and also create new relationships there."
