Social Housing—Housing the Social: Art, Property and Spatial Justice
Andrea Phillips & Fulya Erdemci (Eds.)
Housing provides essential shelter, but also gives form to the social. It represents and embodies the materiality of civic politics and thus demonstrates the uneven nature of spatial justice at local and global scale. This is the second volume in the Actors, Agents and Attendants series (initiated by SKOR | Foundation for Art and Public Domain) and it questions the politics of urban practice from a variety of geopolitical and disciplinary viewpoints, mixing artistic and architectural contributions with those of sociologists, urban historians, philosophers, and activists. Contributors include Manuel Castells, Chto Delat, Teddy Cruz, Zoran Eric ́, Fallen Fruit, Jiang Jun, Doreen Massey, Markus Miessen, Don Mitchell, Partizan Publik, Andrea Phillips, Miguel Robles-Durán, Martha Rosler, and Ultra- red, among others.
