24,00 €
Over four years, OFFICE have curated a public lecture series titled The Politics of Public Space as part of their university teaching, inviting speakers to present in and around Melbourne-and more recently online. Holding the series outside an institution has allowed these discussions to be directed at the city's spaces and the issues at stake in their development. To preserve and disseminate these events, OFFICE have compiled this quarterly publication as a document of the ideas that inform the city. This collection of interviews and talks is the fourth and final volume in the series. While past volumes asked many questions, this collection of interviews and talks puts forward strategies for addressing some of the perceived inequities in the public domain. Nigel Bertram and Kim Dovey's texts explore forms of protest, preservation, and civil disobedience within urban spaces. Protest continues to be intrinsic to public discourse and by consequence, how the city is preserved and developed. In contrast, These modes of resistance have their counterpart in discussions about policy-making and planning. For Lynda Roberts, this is through revealing the political motivations behind the procurement of cultural artifacts and their deployment throughout the arts precinct. Crystal Legacy outlines ideas of agonism and consensus planning in large-scale infrastructure projects. Marcus Westbury reflects on new forms of tenure in creating and running a public cultural institute and Elizabeth Taylor unpacks the political, social, and commercial motivations behind car parking. What is clear is that each of these texts draws the attention of the series back to questions of how we experience cities. As we have found in past volumes, the city privileges certain demographics and bodies over others. Simona Castricum reflects on the diverse experiences of gender non-conforming, trans, and gender diverse people in public space. And the final text, an interview with Sophia Pearce and Jock Gilbert, puts forward their understanding of the Country, and strategies for Indigenous and non-indigenous people to work in collaboration. Unpacking concepts of Story and deep listening and how they shape their projects.
