The third talk in the Spaces of Contestation series, “What Is Already Going On” features the Vancouver and Vienna based cultural research collective Urban Subjects. Picking up from Jamie Peck’s previous talk in the series–on processes of urban neoliberalization and the inversion of creativity–Urban Subjects will discuss cultural possibilities and artistic tactics for our unsteady, contradictory, and unevenly developed present.
The project is co-presented with the SFU Vancity Office of Community Engagement and the SFU Institute for the Humanities, and is supported through the BC Arts Council’s Arts-Based Community Development Program and by the Hamber Foundation.Urban Subjects is a cultural research collective formed in 2004 by Sabine Bitter, Jeff Derksen, and Helmut Weber, and based in Vancouver, Canada and Vienna, Austria. Together they devise research-driven artistic projects that are visual and textual– exhibitions, publications, curatorial work and presentations.Spaces of Contestation: Art, Activism and the City is a series of talks, curated by Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte, presented by SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement, the SFU Institute for the Humanities, and UNIT/PITT Projects.
