This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book seeks to develop the geographical conceptualisation of the heterogeneous and dynamic political assemblages of various materialities and bodies of the more-than-human in the formation and development of civic debates. It examines the qualifications of the apparent civility of spaces, as well as the potential civility of desire, and explores the philosophical conditions under which they are becoming. The book presents the analysis of a space that is often criticised in a demagogical way to define a political agenda and propagate xenophobia. It also presents an understanding of desire as an “extreme” capture of the human by the non-human and aims to explore the seminal work of the Frankfurt School philosopher, Herbert Marcuse, to explore the complex relation between desire and culture. The book explains the journey of queer desire across a series of texts and sites in Belgrade, Serbia.
