Abstract English

Considerations about spatial concepts today have to take into account the actual ongoing loss of space. And
of how such a process is able to generate a multitude of new spaces, at the same time. What both kind of
processes, juxtaposed as they are, have in common, and what their relation to still another kind of processes
is, namely such of formatting, of willingly creating and simulataneously, unwillingly generating a multitude
of formats existing in parallel to each other which impact our everyday lifes, and which rest upon basic assumptions about ‘space’ and ‘reality’ in general. Related to these processes is a loss of space, in actual terms.


Formats, loss of space, hybrid spaces, new spatial frontiers, iconization
