Shrinking Cities.

Whilst in the Bellis Gallery today invigilating our show Degeneration, I got chatting to a really interesting lady who told me about a project called Shrinking Cities.

Cities are shrinking all over the world! /// Shrinking cities are a cultural challenge to us. In theShrinking Cities project, architects, academics and artists investigate recent developments in Detroit, Ivanovo, Manchester / Liverpool and Halle / Leipzig – and make suggestions.

Shrinking cities is a project (2002-2008) of the Federal Cultural Foundation, under the direction of Philipp Oswalt (Berlin) in co-operation with the Leipzig Gallery of Contemporary Art, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and the magazine archplus.
