The second City and Political II class shall take place on January the 26th at 8pm at the Public School, in Program Gallery on Invalidenstr. We shall be reading Samuel Mockbee’s “The Rural Studio.”
We will begin the discussion by listing the key terms Lefebvre introduced in his essay, “The Right to the City,” so bring the terms you think are most important. And then the discussion will move to the Mockbee text.
Also check out the following brief films about the Rural Studio.
And also check out the Rural Studio‘s website.
Lastly, for a more critical essay by Paul Jones and Kenton Card ‘Constructing “Social Architecture”: The Politics of Representing Practice’, or Kenton Card’s ‘Democratic Social Architecture or “Experimentation on the Poor”: ethnographic snapshots’.
