cities interrupted: visual culture and urban space

edited by shirley jordan and christoph lindner (bloomsbury, feb. 2016)

 

Cities Interrupted explores the potential of visual culture - in the form of photography, film, performance, architecture, urban design, and mixed media - to strategically interrupt processes of globalization in contemporary urban spaces. 

Looking at cities such as Amsterdam, Beijing, London, New York, and Paris, the book brings together original essays to reveal how the concept of "interruption" in global cities enables new ways of understanding the forms of space, experience, and community that are emerging in today's rapidly transforming urban environments.
