Bringing together contributions by international specialists from the fields of architecture, photography, film, sociology and cultural analysis, this book considers the poetics and politics of inertia in cities.

Inert Cities

Chapters explore what happens when photography, film, mixed media works, architecture and design intervene in public spaces and urban communities to disrupt speed and growth, both intellectually and/or practically; and question the degree to which mobility is aspirational or imaginary, absolute or transient. Together, they encourage a re-assessment of what it means to be urban in an unevenly globalizing world, to live in cities built around mythologies of perpetual progress.
