This volume is a collection of essays about spatial politics from perspectives defined across differing interests and disciplines.

Authors representing a spectrum of research, from philosophy, fine art, architecture and geo-politics, are gathered together to address the question of space as it is represented and practised in visual art.

The twin avatars that bracket the volume in the context of space as location are Robert Smithson’s concept of ‘the place that is not itself’, the non-site, and contemporary artists, Pieer Huyghe’s poetic invocation of the transitoriness of post-urban dwelling, the celebration’ type of housing communities represented in his film, Streamside Day.
