Die Blasiertheit der Städter*innen – Vom routinierten Umgang mit alltäglicher Komplexität
In everyday life, people will act pragmatically. Continuing their routines as they move through the urban space. To enable people to deal with the everyday complexities and diversity of everyday life, people develop routines to help simplify their existence. These daily routines contain distinctive processes and a certain “blasé attitude” to normal or trivial behavior. Using the example of my ethnographic research at Düsseldorf-Oberbilk it could be argued that this kind of behavior repertoire is crucial for successfully dealing with diversity and complexity of urban life.
