Abstract or Description

As the Creative City model for urban regeneration founders, Anthony Iles and Josephine Berry Slater take stock of an era of highly instrumentalised public art making. Focusing on artists and consultants who have engaged critically with the exclusionary politics of urban regeneration, their analysis locates such practice within a schematic history of urban development's neoliberal mode. Breaking down into a report and collection of interviews, this investigation consistently focuses on the possibility and forms of critical public art within a regime that fetishises 'creativity'. How, they ask, is critical art shaped by its interaction with this aspect of biopolitical governance? Featuring projects and interviews with Alberto Duman, Freee, Nils Norman, Laura Oldfield Ford and Roman Vasseur.
