Doreen Massey: Space and Responsibility

19 April 2013 / Acting Archives

Doreen Massey presents a lecture with running discussion, where she puts forward four propositions to be expanded upon and discussed with the audience. These are 1) space is full of time, 2) to be more outward-looking, 3) space is the dimension of multiplicity, and 4) the necessity to keep space open and alive. Within this framework several subjects are explored, such as the relation between space and time and the political implications of this relation; the relation between the local and the global; the need to change established worldviews; how to re-conceptualise space as a political dimension; and how to keep space open for new political possibilities.
