Situating Art, Urban Space and Globalization

The prediction is that 70 per cent of the world’s population will be Santiago by 2050. What will this world be like and what kinds of spaces will humans be making for themselves? Is it possible to imagine such a future if the present reveals itself only partially and the past is soon forgotten? Can art and design play a role in defining the urban and identifying relationships with it? These questions and more inform this collection, which brings together diverse approaches to re-imagining what cities might be like, or are like, and how humans may inhabit such spaces in conditions of escalating urbanization. If the human subject has been undergoing transformations of identity as Homo economicus in rationalist forces of the global knowledge economy, or Homo digitus through economies of cyber-networks, then new questions need to be asked about being human in such a world and about the kinds of communities, identities and relationships that twenty-first-century urban and global conditions are inscribing. How does the human subject relate to time, space, place and being, now and in the urban future?
