• How do artistic interventions constitute the public sphere?

• Connects reflections on a wide range of artistic practices with theoretical perspectives more

Interrupting the City looks at how artistic practices and interventions constitute the public sphere. To interrupt the city means to arrest the flow or circulation of the urban system. The tactics by which this is achieved may vary, ranging from a media offensive to street riots, but each and every time these activities affect the public sphere, they make the public sphere. Thus, the public domain is constituted by a combination of social, political and media forces, in a continual flux that is constantly being interrupted. This book attempts to chart the conditions for developing a voice in the public sphere, and to ask in what way these conditions may be altered by means of artistic interventions. back
