Dr Julie Ren

Artistic practices have long been disturbing the relationships between art and space. They have challenged the boundaries of performer/spectator, of public/private, introduced intervention and installation, ephemerality and performance, and constantly sought out new modes of distressing expectations about what is construed as art. But when we expand the world in which we look at art, how does this change our understanding of critical artistic practice?

This book launch will feature contributors of the book Art and the City: Worlding the Discussion through a Critical Artscape, introducing work from Beirut, London and Geneva, with an introduction by editor Julie Ren and discussant commentary by Martin Zebracki.

Luisa Bravo is Adjunct Associate Professor, Queensland University of Technology.

Thierry Maeder is a PhD student, University of Geneva.

Nela Milic is Senior Lecturer, Design School, London College of Communication.

Martin Zebracki is Lecturer, School of Geography, University of Leeds.

Julie Ren is Visiting Fellow, LSE.

The LSE Department of Geography & Environment (@LSEGeography) is a centre of international academic excellence in economic, urban and development geography, environmental social science and climate change.
