> Even as we enter a period of recession, there may be yet a glimmer  
> of hope.
> Are we facing an about turn from the last 30 years of Milton Friedman
> inspired economics that has left our cities wastelands of corporate
> monoculture? If so, there are still a few questions left unanswered…
>
> In an era when the phrase "affects a conservation area" has been no  
> obstacle
> to the planning application for a shopping centre housing solely  
> global
> brands; when 12 million pounds has been spent in the East Midlands for
> extending CCTV systems that have miserable figures for reducing  
> crime; when
> urban regeneration means the extension of the corporate high street  
> to the
> exclusion of independent, local communities; when half of the entire  
> UK
> population now shops in barely 1000 giant superstores….
>

>
> Where do we go for explanations?
>
> Why are our everyday movements constantly monitored and the details  
> of our
> lives banked?
>
> How is where we live a reflection of our wants, desires and taxes or  
> the
> interests of powerful outside forces?
>
> Who are the self proclaimed guardians that watch over us in our  
> cities and
> who are the gatekeepers to Fortress Britain?
>
> .
> To unpick these questions and more, Radiator will place 5 artists at  
> the
> urban coalface - the offices and backrooms of companies and  
> institutions -
> where the fates of our city spaces are stamped and sealed.
>
> Architects, planning departments, telemarketeers, city council  
> offices,
> surveillance and monitoring centres – just some of the types of  
> agencies we
> want our artists to infiltrate as sleeper agents, biding their time in
> observation, gathering information, doing work for the agency and  
> for us.
>
> During this time we expect our artist agents to file daily copy, to  
> write
> blogs, to post pictures and draw thought maps and to eventually give a
> thorough account of their activities and their discoveries at a  
> debriefing
> meeting, otherwise known as the Radiator Symposium on Performing  
> Space that
> will take place this Autumn 08 in partnership with Nottingham Trent
> University.
