          Notes on the Shopping Malls of Manado, Indonesia

        Abstract
        A shopping mall in the Indonesian provincial city of Manado
        provides the perfect setting in which to explore the mismatch
        between the speculative aims and the generic, allegedly
        global concept of the shopping mall on the one hand and
        the actual consumption capacity of this particular case on
        the other. The case shows the strong interdependence of
        local users and the supposedly global mall management.
        It is evident that density and culture play an important role
        in this cheerful and colourful instant re-appropriation and
        transformation of this consumer space into a public space.
        The collective space is produced through (subversive)
        practices.
