HOUSING AFTER THE NEOLIBERAL TURN: INTERNATIONAL CASE STUDIES. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 120 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783959050487 In English.
Publisher's description: Housing speaks directly to the challenges that define our times: social inequality, ecological crisis, displacement, asylum, migration and privatization. Framing the neo-liberal context as a defining condition of contemporary housing, International Case Studies consists of two parts: a series of essays by authors from architecture, anthropology, economy and literature, and an "atlas" of global housing that takes neo-liberalism as its starting point. The essays shed light on the challenges and conflicts of contemporary housing production from Andrew Herscher's research on the politics of "blight" in Detroit to Justin McGuirk's text on domesticity as data and universal housing questions eclipse by the "Internet of Things." Conceptualized and compiled by architectural critic-historian Anne Kockelkorn and Columbia professor Reinhold Martin, the illustrated "atlas" presents 33 housing examples rarely seen together and invites readers to think of housing as an unstable constellation evolving within the power relations of territorial processes.
