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 a result from an experimental workshop with Spanish artist Julian Baron, IC-Visual Lab, and twelve workshop participants. The workshop delivered in collaboration with: People’s Republic of Stokes Croft; Acción Cultural Española (AC/E); The University of West of England, and Arts Council England.
