The Impact of Artists on Contemporary Urban Development in EuropeArtists as Planners? Identifying Five Conceptual Spaces for Interactive Urban Development

The Impact of Artists on Contemporary Urban Development in Europe: Artists as Planners?... [This chapter analyses the engagement of artists with policy-makers and planners in attempts to produce ‘new conceptual spaces’ in which planning practice and the development of urban policy become processes of knowledge and policy co-production. It explores the different forms that this co-production can take, focusing especially on how artists inform or affect the urban planning imagination. Five types of conceptual space for artist-planning interactions are identified through an analysis of the state of the art in this field and by considering a number of projects in which artists, policy-makers and planners interacted in urban development projects. This underpins an examination of artists’ agency and potential in shaping a more progressive urban politics through collaboration with urban policy-makers and planners, whilst retaining the notion that these interactions are experimental, messy, incomplete and still shot through with power relations. The chapter concludes by discussing the role of the artist in co-producing urban policy and planning strategy.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[This chapter analyses the engagement of artists with policy-makers and planners in attempts to produce ‘new conceptual spaces’ in which planning practice and the development of urban policy become processes of knowledge and policy co-production. It explores the different forms that this co-production can take, focusing especially on how artists inform or affect the urban planning imagination. Five types of conceptual space for artist-planning interactions are identified through an analysis of the state of the art in this field and by considering a number of projects in which artists, policy-makers and planners interacted in urban development projects. This underpins an examination of artists’ agency and potential in shaping a more progressive urban politics through collaboration with urban policy-makers and planners, whilst retaining the notion that these interactions are experimental, messy, incomplete and still shot through with power relations. The chapter concludes by discussing the role of the artist in co-producing urban policy and planning strategy.]
