Tonight (Wednesday, February 5), we’re co-presenting a talk by Urban Subjects, the latest in the Spaces of Contestation series. It’s at SFU Woodwards in the Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre, at 7pm, and admission is free.
Urban Subjects is a cultural research collective made up of Sabine Bitter, Jeff Derksen, and Helmut Weber. Their work fits nicely with the overall motivation of Spaces of Contestation, which will culminate in public actions, an exhibition, and publications in March and April of this year, since they work on “global-urban issues, the texture of cities, and on civic imaginations” using the vantage point and tools provided by poetic and artistic practice, informed by critical theory.
Join us at 7pm. If you can’t make it tonight, we will be posting a video later on. You can see videos of the two previous talks here: Geoff Mann, Scarcity Makes the City; and Jamie Peck, Neoliberal Urbanism – Artful Alternatives?
