SHARED CITIES ATLAS. POST-SOCIALIST CITIES AND ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP IN CENTRAL EUROPE
Shared Cities Atlas maps the seven cities in Central Europe (Berlin, Belgrade, Bratislava, Budapest, Prague, Katowice, Warsaw). The global paradigm of sharing is perceived in a specific situation of Central Europe. The region still represents a blind spot on the map of Europe – thirty years after the Fall of the Iron Curtain. Shared Cities Atlas strives to describe the common traits of the urban socialist past of Central Europe and its iconic brutalist architectures. The case studies open up the politics and economies of the urban spaces in transition, in confrontation with and mediated by digital tools for contemporary data analysis and knowledge sharing.
Shared Cities Atlas is a comprehensive tool for navigation in the seven cities – three overreaching chapters Sharing Architecture and Spaces, Urban Activism and Sharing Data and Knowledge define the shared identities, creative and activist practices and architectural strategies and tactics of sharing. Data Trends in the CE region and City Profiles provide comparisons of demography, economy and living conditions in infographic diagrams. The exclusively commissioned Photography Essays of each city provide insight in the urban landscapes. Shared Cities Atlas is a final outcome of the 4-year collaboration in the project Shared Cities: Creative Momentum. It represents an active contemporary network, the emerging 30+ generation and actors in these cities.

SHARED CITIES ATLAS: DIGITAL EXHIBITION AND DISCUSSIONS
The publication was transformed into digital format at Prague CAMP on 03.09.2019 and into discussion panels: Shared Identities, Spaces and Politics in Central Europe. The series of panels drew new maps of Central Europe based on the Shared Cities Atlas. The aim was to contextualize the main topics of the Shared Cities project within a broader international discourse.
