The New Metropolitan
The New Metropolitan

October 2014 — 2016  The New Metropolitan - a web-magazine about new cultures of urban citizenship. Working with a network of researchers I commissioned and directed new content, design and events. Our first event Amsterdam, Street Art & Gentrification with Christoph Lindner considered some of the unexpected ways in which artistic attempts to foster hospitality and belonging at a community level can produce new, subtle forms of exclusion and false intimacy.
