Urban Heterotopias

Urban heterotopias make themselves apparent most vividly through the videoscapes in this set of works. These spaces create their own psycho-geographies within the shared domain of the city. Inevitably, the city is the most charged site for the performance of politics. It is the ground where multiple ideologies collide, intertwine, repel and dance with each other. What are some forms of co-habitation and contestation that take place within the city? The videos in the concluding session closely contemplate the urban condition as well as actions that consistently rework the landscapes of our everyday encounters. Can these revelations readdress our equation with the urban space, and alter our fields of vision?
