In November 2018 The Journal of Public Space published the special issue ‘Art and Activism in Public Space’, that was launched in Barcelona at RMIT Europe headquarters, during the SkypeLab Sympolab (http://www.skypelab.org/), and was introduced by Estanislau Roca Blanch, Vice Rector for Infrastructure and Architecture at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
The issue collected a selection of projects of invited artists and activists, from Italy, Spain, Germany, United States, South America, Africa and Australia, and was the result of a collaboration between City Space Architecture and RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.
The issue received an overwhelming success: according to our data and statistics, it gave a significant boost to the journal, so we decided to start a series on this topic. The Journal of Public Space is interested to embed artists and activists’ research work in the discussion on public space, highlighting the importance of on-the-ground observations and human-oriented thinking for the future of cities.
