The short films by students  and members of IGmA  and of c/o now  approximate Stuttgart through the lense of “determinate  negation”, a  concept conceived by one of the most famous children of the city:  Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. One of the pillars of  critical thinking is the  resistance to fixation, closure and reaction. If we want to plan an  Anti-Stuttgart with Hegel´s ideas, the  endeavour cannot be about fundamental  rejection, but about critical, precise and poignant confrontation with that  which  exists. Being against is method of cognition as well as an aesthetic  project. With this in mind we ask, if a positive project  can be conceived out  of a critique: Are there anti-spaces–and how would they look?
