Personal Experience: The "Domestication" of Public Space
March 7, 2012
Center for Urban History, Lviv
The interior design of cafés and restaurants frequently uses the theme of a private residence. We used several objects as examples to discuss the simulation of the context, feeling and atmosphere of domestic comfort in public spaces; the transfer of memory, objects and meanings from the private into the public sphere, and vice versa; the use and "depersonalization" of personal things; the creation of the simulacrum, the "ideal"/"mythical" home.
