The city wears you out. Constantly assaulted by ERP gantries, pavement studs, placebo buttons and open plazas that masquerade as public space, the citizen discerns just how expensive and exclusive the city can be. Everyone knows exactly where he or she should be.
Discipline the City is a response to the question of control, access, and politics of space. Housed within a former power station, this exhibition is designed as an anti-building with misaligned spaces ranging from a failed museum, a punk-in-residence, to a bruising narrative of trapdoors in a dungeon. It is part proposal part elegy; most of all, it is a question that always leads back to you – who has the right to the city?
