Monu 34: Protest Urbanism
Our social media age marks a shift in form and forum, but when it comes to this issue’s theme of “Protest Urbanism” the need for and validity of having physical bodies in a public space still gives a protest its impact. It is these visceral encounters in physical spaces that trigger deeper and more emotional connections. This issue examines the myriad ways in which such activism manifests in the urban realm, as well as how protests can become breeding grounds for the evolution of urban agencies, functioning as organisms within the larger urban theatre in their call to recognise and reconstitute the fundamentally plural and relational forms of making and inhabiting the city.
