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).
