Susanna Newbury (Art) published "In Residence," a chapter in Amsterdam University Press' new Aesthetics of Gentrification: Seductive Spaces and Exclusive Communities in the Neoliberal City (ed. Christoph Linder and Gerard Sandoval, 2021). Newbury's contribution focuses on artists' role in urban economic development, proposes an ethics of witnessing for those wrestling with their own complicity.
Featuring contributions from 17 scholars in the U.S, United Kingdom, and Canada, Aesthetics of Gentrification asks how contemporary creative practices in art, architecture, and related fields help produce or resist gentrification. Examining the relationship between aesthetics and gentrification in contemporary cities from multiple, comparative, global, and transnational perspectives, it demonstrates that a focus on aesthetics should be at the core of our understanding of gentrification and displacement.
