Da die Komplexität gegenwärtiger Stadtentwicklungskonflikte in Quartieren wie Hamburg-St. Pauli etablierte diskurstheoretische Zugänge mit ihrem Fokus auf sprachliche Diskurse herausfordert, entwirft Katharina Wischmann ein an Michel Foucault anschließendes Diskurskonzept, das Visualität und Materialität als Dimensionen des Diskursiven konzeptualisiert. Die Autorin zeigt, auf welche Weise spezifische Architekturen, Hochhausquartiere und Altbaubestände, Abrisse und Neubauten gesellschaftliche Machtverhältnisse konstituieren. Mit einem stadtphotographischen Zugang wird die Rolle dieser Visualitäten und Materialitäten erforscht und diese als Kristallisationspunkte stadtteilpolitischen Argumentierens und Positionierens herausgearbeitet.
