Summary: "Public space" is under pressure in these turbulent times: Who does it belong to, who uses it, and how? The book "Public space" is about the significance of this space, focusing not only on public space itself but also on its representation in political theory and the world of images. George Baird's book provides insights into the use, identity and representation of public space, drawing on various disciplines, in particular political and cultural theory. His main questions are: "Can a space be described as public or not?" and: "What characteristics of space can we identify that make it 'public' in character?"
