White Paper: On Land, Law and the Imaginary
White Paper: On Land, Law and the Imaginary is an experimental compendium to White Paper (2013–16), a project developed collaboratively by artist Adelita Husni-Bey with several organizations and groups. Divided into three distinct chapters revolving around the relationship between legislation, property and agency vis-.-vis the right to housing in Egypt, the Netherlands and Spain, this publication chronicles the project’s tactics of representation and diverse methodological approaches across institutions and informal spaces. Ranging from collective-writing workshops, film production and formal exhibition-making to public discussion and actions, White Paper: On Land, Law and the Imaginary provides tools for analysing and acting upon the expansion of speculative neoliberal urban policies, and for re-imagining the space of the commons.
