Lecture: David Harvey on Urban Front

Lecture

On Wednesday 4 December 2019, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht proudly presents a lecture by Distinguished Professor David Harvey. The lecture focuses on the theory and practice of Urban Front, a transnational urban consultancy co-founded by Harvey and Associate Professor Miguel Robles-Durán.


Urban Front, launched during the Chicago Architecture Biennial in 2019, is made up of independent associates around the world. The network provides trans-disciplinary research support, tactical directions, and critical advice to diverse governments and organizations aiming to confront the contradictions of neoliberal urbanization and to develop new visions for the well-being of its citizens. In his lecture, Harvey addresses the theoretical proposition of Urban Front and opens a discussion on new forms of institutional practice within the neoliberal condition.

This lecture is part of a two-day program with Urban Front (David Harvey and Miguel Robles-Durán), taking place at BAK on 4 and 5 December 2019 as part of Trainings for the Not-Yet (14 September 2019–12 January 2020). The program includes two additional events on Thursday 5 December 2019: a training, Training XVIII: Disrupting Neoliberal Urban Governance: New Organizational Forms for the Immediate Future, during the day (14.00–19.00 hrs) and a panel discussion: Panel: Urban Practices & the Future of the City with Urban Front on Urban Front’s practice in the evening (19.30–21.00 hrs).
