Advances in Art & Urban Futures: Recoveries and Reclamations9781841500553, 1841500550

Author : Judith Rugg, Daniel Hinchcliffe
Description:This second volume investigates the multi-disciplinary terrain of space and culture, extending the boundaries of urbanism and addressing issues of public space. It demonstrates that critical understanding of cultural interventions in public space is now relevant to a range of disciplines. Contributions include works on: the examination of ''authentic'' public space in Barcelona; the relationship of the work of Doris Salcedo to the unseen spaces in Birmingham; the implications of gender in the creation of The Wapping Project in East London; the self-representation of asylum-seekers from Bosnia-Herzegovina; the issue of the ''imagined'' community in relation to the Irish in Britain; and the significance of assemblage in the work of Mierle Laderman Ukeles and the global importance of local actions in collaborations between ecologists and artists.
