This article explores the creation of new structures of participation and counter imaginaries within the city between the poles of arts and politics. On the basis of two case studies, one situated in the non-institutionalised artistic field and one in the non-institutionalised political field, I will explore narratives of a 'topography of the possible' in the city of Salzburg. Aiming to outline collage pieces of a topography of the possible and of counter-narrative in and of the city – the city is looked at in terms of collage, understood as overlapping layers of the three spatial dimensions materiality (physical space), sociability (social space) and the imaginary (symbolic space). These are understood as differing but interrelated spatial dimensions, each one unfolding forms of collective appropriation of a city. The focus lies on the creation of social relations and collective imaginaries on the micro-level of cultural and political self-organised initiatives, looked at under terms of narration and storytelling. My ethnographic project asks for the creative potentiality of a city and for the creative power of social relations and collective imaginaries.
Creating Situations and Spaces of a City's Counter-narrative

This article provides an overview of Moroccan people's eating habits, in a context of urbanisation and, more broadly, of ongoing changes in lifestyles and social aspirations. The analysis is mainly based on data from a quantitative survey conducted between 2012 and 2013. It focuses on the differences and commonalities between the meals of Casablanca residents and those of the inhabitants of rural areas in the Souss region. The article points out the existence of differentiated situations between the two contexts, particularly with regard to the number of meals or food sociability. It also shows the importance of certain habits, both in the city and in rural villages, such as the social valuation of certain dishes or products, or the importance of commensality.
Cet article propose un panorama des habitudes des Marocains relatives aux repas, dans un contexte d'urbanisation et, plus largement, de mutations en cours dans les modes de vie et les aspirations sociales. L'analyse se fonde principalement sur les données d'une enquête quantitative menée entre 2012 et 2013. Elle porte sur les différences et les points de convergence entre les repas des Casablancais et ceux des habitants de communes rurales du Souss. L'article pointe l'existence de situations différenciées entre les deux contextes, s'agissant en particulier du nombre des repas ou encore des sociabilités alimentaires. Il montre aussi la prégnance, en ville comme dans les villages ruraux, de certaines habitudes, telle que la valorisation de certains plats ou produits, ou l'importance de la commensalité.
