Idea Code 17017

Conceived as an exploratory collection of materials, the content of this book revolves around the relationship that artist Adelita Husni-Bey explored between legislation, notions of property, and agency vis-à-vis the right to housing in Egypt, the Netherlands, and Spain. Each chapter presents itself as a reflection of the themes: Land, Law, Imaginary, that range from art historical perspectives to narrative fiction, collages and field-work notes. As such the book’s structure speaks to the project’s unfolding in time and its presence in radically distinct contexts, while also chronicling the multi-disciplinary approach and the wide range of formats and methodologies the project has brought to great effect.
