Abstract or Description

Review of Audit, by Lucy Kimble. Mute magazine, 26:

The London Particular (Benedict Seymour and David Panos) see the borough of Hackney in the East End of London as a microcosm of contemporary power processes. Long a dumping ground for London’s poor, Hackney is becoming an increasingly regulated space of flows, where, in the name of life and culture, ‘regeneration’ incubates gentrification and new forms of biopolitical control. Taking the recent police siege in Hackney’s ‘creative quarter’ as the key to an increasingly precarious urban condition, this special project looks at the possibilities for life in the regenerated inner city
