The antiglobalisation ideas that emerged in the late nineties and early twenty-first century, the implosion of neoliberal innovation that began with the ‘Asian' economic crisis between 1997 and 1999, the economic collapse in Argentina and the depression in the central area of the United States, along with the subsequent global financial uncertainty, are all signs of the failure of neoliberalism. This book explores urban emergence, its forms and processes, ‘after neoliberalism' by looking at the experiences of various cities.

I’d really like to think that the artist could be just another kind of material in the picture, working in collaboration with all the other materials.
