    'This is not about gentrification’

    A cooperative bakery in the shadow of Liverpool FC’s stadium is aiming to transform a derelict terrace into affordable homes for the local community.

    Book launch What's the Use?

    What's the Use? Constellations of Art, History, and Knowledge (Valiz, Van Abbemuseum, L'Internationale, 2016), is a collection of essays on the 'uses' of art. The starting point of the Reader is that art is an integral part of social, economic, and political processes, and that it is best understood in dialogue with these contexts, rather than as a 'thing in itself'. In their contributions, artists and writers explore the exchange between art, use, knowledge and history; now and in the past.

    Article in DAMn #58

  • Oct 29, 2018Each map suggests a new framework through which to see the shifting landscape of the city, addressing the narratives that are often made invisible by dominant systems and linear understandings of time. These range in scale from the personal, to the local, to the global. #PhlassembledCityPanorama Collectively created concept and design: Bri Barton @everybodycolors (drawings), Charlyn Griffith @wholisticart (drawings), Jeanne van Heeswijk (initiating artist), Shari Hersh (process), in•sitecolaborative @insitecollab including Larissa Begault, Rania Dalloul, Nora Elmarzouky, and Sara Minard (framework design, research, and mapping), Jason Killinger @jasonkillinger (design), Janneke Absil (design), and Maurits de Bruijn (webdesign).
