Precarity, Collectivity and Inhabitation in Today’s Cities

Listen to the full audio of the talk (above) by AbdouMaliq Simone where he uses three stories to explain ideas of precarity, collectivity and inhabitation in today’s cities.

Using examples of particular forms of built environments from Jakarta, Simone discusses how these stories are told and constructed in cities. He also speaks about new forms of 'collective life' emerging in the midst of inequality and messiness of urban life, and what these imply for the cities.

More information about the talk can be found on the event page.
