Review - Book - Art and Architecture: A Place Between

BOOK
By Richard Williams

Art and Architecture: A Place Between.
By Jane Rendell.
I B Tauris, 2006.
£18.99

This is a survey of a wide range of contemporary events, installations and interventions, assembled under the rubric of ‘critical spatial practice’. Its theoretical reference points include Walter Benjamin, Henri Lefebvre and Michel de Certeau, familiar to a generation of architecture students, but also the urban geographers David Harvey and Doreen Massey, and the art critic Rosalind Krauss. The cover recommendation comes from Rosalyn Deutsche, whose excellent book Evictions (AJ 02.10.97) was perhaps the first large-scale account of the topic.
