Re: <nettime> Are Cities Good For Creativity?


On this subject of camps as cities there
is an extraordinary photo-essay at
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/picture_gallery/06/
americas_inside_a_bolivian_jail/html/1.stm

San Pedro prison, the biggest in Bolivia's main city, La Paz, is
home to about 1,500 inmates. Once you pass the thick walls and the
security gates, any resemblance to a normal jail disappears: there are
children playing, market stalls, restaurants, hairdressers and even a
hotel. It looks more like the streets of El Alto, Bolivia's poorest
neighbourhood that sprawls on the outskirts of La Paz, than a prison.
