Cities on the Move and Urban Riots

Christoph Burkhard and Heinz Nigg (Eds.)

2001/2017, 45 mins, with English subtitles, available through www.av-produktionen.ch

To make the video archive “Stadt in Bewegung” known to a wider public, the compilation Stadt in Bewegung—urbane Revolten (Cities on the move and urban riots) was created, with the support of Memoriav, the Association for the preservation of the audiovisual heritage of Switzerland. The compilation focuses on the youth riots and the urban movements of the 1980s. The DVD was enclosed with the book Wir wollen alles, und zwar subito! (Heinz Nigg, Zurich: Limmat Verlag, 2001). While the book is out of print, it is still available as an e-book.
