about this item

Making a critical intervention into the relationship between architecture and control at the turn of the 20th century to the 21st, contributors from the visual and literary arts trace how various kinds of architecture offer complex and often contradictory vehicles for establishing control, while various other kinds allow for alternative modes of control and forms of resistance. In sections on surface phenomena of the broad present, contested sites, and control and resistance, they consider such aspects as informatic brutalism, the uncanny of surveillance: architectures of hyperactive incapacity in Nikolaus Geyrhalter's Abendland and Falk Richter's Unter Eis, probing the terrain: architectures of control and uncertainty in the occupied Palestinian Territories, the Ellstorp Lot: an undefined urban landscape, city of control: José Padilha and the policing of Rio de Janeiro in Ônibus 174 (Bus 174) and Tropa de Elite (EliteSquad), and advertising architecture and containers: the hidden world of logistics and spectacular architecture.
