Editorial by Zanny Begg and Lee Stickells: ‘The Right to The City is an exhibition and publishing project bringing together a series of artistic, theoretical and philosophical escape plans. These escape plans range from the whimsical to the more serious, and present real or imagined ways of reinventing life in our cities. The project will explore the challenge of “putting foundations” under these “castles in the air” – seeking connections between art, architecture, philosophy and action.’ We were commissioned to create a new work ‘Strategies of Indirection’ responding to the notion of ‘the right to the city’ for the exhibition and speak at the conference. Our contribution to the collective catalogue was a sequence of short quotes that generated a meeting point of ideas.
