WWB TV. The Antinomies of the Post-Political and Post-Democratic City Lecture by Erik Swyngedouw
The main theme, which is said in his speech, Erik Swyngedouw is the figure of the post-political town. The polis is dead.
Long live the creative city! They have become the diverse, heterotopian, and ‘glocal’ sites that harbour all manner of possibilities and emancipatory promises, while expressing often the most radical and oppressive forms of exclusion and uneven development. This century will be, much more than the previous one, the century of the city.
