Clive Barnett promotes Mustafa Dikeç’s new book (Space, Politics and Aesthetics) in relation to his own ongoing work. Barnett also links to my review of Dikeç’s new book: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/13562576.2015.1023625
I took part in a ‘conversation’ on the theme of Spaces of Democracy yesterday at UCL, organised by Liza Griffin and others, one of a series of events co-organised by the Bartlett School and the OU’s OpenSpace research centre. The other participants were Erik Swyngedouw and Mustafa Dikeç. I gave a potted version of the argument of the book I’m meant to be writing, in response to the question ‘Does democracy need the city?‘.
