Intermission: Critical mappings of spatial politics and aesthetics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The Intermission takes a step back and reflects on the frame that Volume I offers for the organisation and development of thinking about the connections between politics and control (and between violence and governmentality) as these bear on architecture and urban space. It considers what this frame might reveal about the epistemological complexity of the topic, and on the various ways that this might be ‘viewed’ and ‘written’; and the role and consequences of authorship, education and the production and circulation of knowledge. It traces some of the broad concerns that emerge across the contributions to this Volume, and dwells on some of the through-lines that can be identified there: operative readings and critical mapping practices; the demands and complexities of looking differently; and the interconnections between technologies, authorship, education and access to knowledge.
