Tino Buchholz is an urban sociologist living now in Amsterdam where he made the documentary film ‘Creativity and the Capitalist City‘. It is a story about gentrification, squatting and the economic frameqork.
Richard Florida’s approach cannot think the creativity without the economic frameqork. You have to be successfull > an update of the American Dream. But there is a certain division between legal and legitim means…
The sleeping beauty in the city are the empty spaces which awaken by creativity could give a major positive output to all.
The creativity has gone!
