Recoveries and Reclamations (Book)

Advances in Art & Urban Futures Vol. 2

This second volume of the series Advances in Art & Urban Futures brings together contributions from artists, sociologists, architects and cultural theorists in addressing the recoveries and reclamations being made within urban and rural landscapes as a result of the fallout of redevelopment in the twenty-first century.

Recoveries and Reclamations addresses pertinent issues facing all those interested in a multi-disciplinary approach to developing critical interventions in public space.

The book includes the examination of the work of Doris Salcedo to the unseen spaces in Birmingham; the implications of gender in the creation of The Wapping Project in East London; the self-representation of asylum seekers from Bosnia-Herzegovina; the issue of the 'imagined' community in relation to the Irish in Britain; the significance of assemblage in the work of Mierle Laderman Ukeles and the global importance of local actions in collaborations between ecologists and artists.
