Urban design & civil protest

Tali Hatuka (Curator)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


"What makes citizens choose a particular form of protest? How does space function as mediator between these citizens and their political acts? Whose power and control drive negotiations between citizens and regimes during protests? Addressing these questions, this exhibition offers a window into how people use, manipulate, claim, and appropriate urban space while advocating for their own values. It should be noted that the exhibit looks at these issues in a socio-spatial context, without any consideration of moral and political narratives [...] As a laboratory for examining the socio-spatial dynamics of protest, the exhibition looks at the relationship between three themes: Boundaries, Voice, and Appropriation, as the key interrelated elements of protest, which become its Spatial Choreography. These themes are investigated, both separately and in relation to one another, as abstractions that re-position space as an actor in the discourse of protest"--catalog.
