New publication in the Curating the City series

News: May 10, 2017

The anthology Memories of a City is the latest contribution in the Curating the City publication series.

This anthology, edited by Jonathan Westin and Ingrid Martins Holmberg is the result of the international conference Challenge the past/diversify the future. The contributions collected in the anthology deal with ways of challenging accepted historical representations of the City by offering modes of recollection and perspectives that capture both multi-sensory and multi-layered aspects of urban context. As such, they offer new empirically grounded research on the experiences of the inhabitants, both past and present, whether individually or as a collective. With a focus on the city as a space that is performed by a host of actants reaching across time through both materiality and memory, the authors critically address modes through which visual, audible, and multi-sensory representations can challenge, diversify or uproot conventions of urban representation. Four projects. Four takes on making representations of a city.
