Marjetica Potrc: Urgent Architectureby Marjetica Potrc, Michael Rush (Editor), Carlos Basualdo (Text by), Eyal Weizman (Text by), Liyat Esakov (Text by)
Slovenian artist Marjetica Potrc discovers beauty in the unplanned urban landscapes of shantytowns, trailer parks, and barrios. In her installations in various art institutions across the globe, she sends instructions to the musum staff on how to build her installations--often inspired by a type of shelter found halfway across the world--out of local materials. Here she instructs/constructs a massive installation of housing units based on observations made of temporary shelters and gated communities in Caracas, the West Bank, and West Palm Beach. Urgent Architecture Includes a DVD of an interview with the artist.
