Studio Fontana

The Dreamed City, Podcast (2021)


In this podcast, journalist Jeanine van Berkel speaks with social designer Gabriel Fontana about his work on queer pedagogies in sport and about how urban sport practices shape power dynamics in the city.


Street football sometimes operates as a practice of man-spreading; where most of the time only male bodies play football on the street. They take up a disproportionate space, reducing the space that's available to other bodies. This kind of gender-biased social phenomenon occurs not only in public spaces, but also frequently in the school context, both in the sports class and the playground.


Through their conversation, Jeanine and Gabriel discussed methods and strategies to foster a more equitable use and occupation of public space.
