Envisaging L'Aquila

There goes the neighbourhood

Here is a very interesting art project on neighbourhoods and gentrification launched by a group based in Redfern (Sydney, Australia). The event took place in 2009 and was performed up by over a dozen Australian and international artists. An edited book has also been published which can be found at the link below. It features pieces by MICHAEL RAKOWITZ, BRENDA L. CROFT, JAKOB JAKOBSEN, BIJARI and others on issues of gentrification, resistance and art movements. Thanks to Davide Ghiraldini for letting me know about this project.
