CRITICAL SPATIAL PRATICE 6: EYAL WEIZMAN -- THE ROUNDABOUT REVOLUTIONS. Ed. by Nikolaus Hirsch and Markus Miessen. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 120 pp. 15 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956790980 In English.
Publisher's description: The sixth volume in the politically charged, idea-packed Critical Spatial Practice series, The Roundabout Revolutions stems from Israeli scholar and architect Eyal Weizman's observation that the circle or roundabout has been the site of multiple revolutionary protests against authoritarianism, most recently in South Korea, Tunisia, Egypt, Oman, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya and Syria. The book follows its development in 20th-century Europe and North America and its subsequent export to the colonial world as a means of policing "chaotic" non-Western cities. Weizman asks, how did an urban apparatus put in the service of authoritarian power become the locus of its undoing? Countering this counterrevolution, he proposes protestors must find its corollary in sustained work at round tables to be able to enact political change. Princeton global scholar, Goldsmiths College teacher and co-editor of Forensis (Sternberg, 2014), Wiezman focuses on how consciousness affects and is affected by our environment.
