Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Precarious Spaces addresses current concerns around the instrumentality and agency of art in the context of the precarity of daily life. The book offers a survey of socially and community-engaged art practices in South America, focusing in particular on Brazil, and contributes to the debate about the possibility for change through social, environmental and ecological solutions. The chapters present a wide spectrum of contemporary social agency models with an emphasis on detailed case studies and local histories. Chapters feature critical reflections on the spaces of urban voids, derelict buildings, self-built communities such as favela, and roadside occupations.
