Unequal Urbanisms

Watch the Livestream

Description

Speakers will address urgent questions raised by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)'s current exhibition Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities, which was organized by Pedro Gadanho, curator in MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design. The discussion will explore how rapidly changing demographics, uncontrolled urban growth, and unequal distribution of goods and services are affecting the way cities function, creating new social, political, economic, and cultural conditions. Among the questions to be addressed is how cultural institutions and networks within these new urban environments can aid in the establishment of "micro-ecologies" that can contribute a stabilizing force despite asymmetrical distributions of wealth and benefits.
