Urban Art and the Block: Placemaking symposium

02/13/2018 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society

This symposium investigates places and the various practices of making, unmaking, remaking, and representing them. Often inscribed by deep-seated structures of violence and inequality, places can also hold the potential for positive transformation and methods of self-representation. From Chicago’s South Side to Brazilian favelas to the spatial contestations between Israeli and Palestinian borders, we examine the issue of place entangled by the complexities of its legal, economic, political, and social dimensions. Speakers include Terry Clark, Brodie Fischer, Tom Mitchell, Jacqueline Stewart, and Eyal Weizman. This event is part of the 2017–2018 Sawyer Seminar on Urban Art and Urban Form.
Presented by UChicago Urban and UChicago Arts.
