Subvert the City

#subvertthecity

As we struggle in the wake of the London attacks to imagine what a city is and what a city is for, beyond the empty response of patriotic consumerism (‘go about your business’)…

‘By night and by day, imagine a city where art replaces the visual pollution of ads’

    Mike, this is inspiring, and is it possible to give the visual artists who created and physically implemented these interventions a credit? Makes me think about Henri Lefebvre and his thinking & dialogue on the “Right to the city” — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_to_the_city. More on the “Right to the city” will be published in English in the late summer. (In my translation from the German original). This not intended as a plug, but rather an invitation to all to engage more deeply in this provocative discourse.

      Hi Henry – yeah Lefebre stuff really good. Some of the artists don’t want a credit … but i’ll see if I can distinguish those who do
