Neil Brenner gives keynote lecture at Creative Time Summit in New York City

Oct 25, 2013

Neil Brenner gave the opening lecture at the Creative Time Summit in New York City on “Art, Place, and Displacement in the 21st century City.”  Building upon Henri Lefebvre’s concept of the “right to the city,” Brenner discussed the possibilities and limits of place-making  as a means to promote radical sociospatial transformation under conditions of neoliberalizing capitalism.  The conference brought together a wide range of artists, designers, writers, film-makers, activists, musicians, curators and thinkers who are engaging in radical new ways with urban questions, conditions and transformations.  It was exciting and inspiring to see the worlds of radical art/design and critical urban theory intersect so productively in this remarkable conference.
