Abstract [en]

In 1968, the French philosopher and sociologist Henri Lefebvre published his book The right to the city (Lefebvre, 2009). From the original idea of the book — that cities are for people, building collective life and not for capitalist transactions where city life is commodified and citizens mere consumers — the concept of “the right to the city” has become widely employed by different grassroots organizations aiming for social justice in the city. In the following, I will give examples of how recognition is fundamental in planning the urban environment and giving people with disability — citizens and inhabitants of the city — equal access to the city. This photo essay originates with the importance physical environment has for accessibility and the spatial justice for everyone to take place in the city on equal terms. Through a few photographs taken in situations where I carried out so-called ‘go-along’ with persons using electric wheelchairs, I will discuss and analyse the relationship between the physical environment and the individual.
