In The Cage: Visualising the Housing Dysfunction, the housing crisis is explored through the construction and interrogation of an eclectic archive composed of visual materials from official and unofficial archives, public and private collections as well as community and online sources.
The Cage encapsulates the work around four conceptual areas: Living Costs and Standards of Housing, Privatisation and Home Ownership, Tenant Identity, and Homelessness. This publication is the result of an experimental workshop with Spanish artist Julian Baron, IC-Visual Lab, and twelve workshop participants. The workshop was presented in collaboration with the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft; Acción Cultural Española (AC/E); The University of West of England, and Arts Council England.
The participants of this workshop were Emma Iris-Hill, Alastair Myers, object…, Tom Cullimore, Tom Roche, Alejandro Acín, Matthew Gonzalez Noda, Robert Ruszczyk, Renia Maj, Julian Barón, Colin Pantall and Stephen Monger.
