In town this week...

Urban (Col)laboratory Manchester: Blind Spots

A path crossed over and over, a street swept again and again…negotiations of the city are conducted through everyday rituals,tasks, and activities. The way places are perceived is premised onassumptions, conventions and rules that have material bearing on theway lives are lived; inscribed in spatial and mental structures that are partially produced by their incorporation.

Blind spots is a performance in the streets of Manchester that combines performance and architecture, practice and theory, intervention and lecture to offer a socio-spatial critique of these structures.

Urban (Col)laboratory are Helen Stratford, architect/critical writer (UK) & Diana Wesser media/performance artist (D)
