        Evictions: Art and Spatial Politics

      1. Deutsche presents a feminist and postmodern critique of the politics of representation and the use of ‘space’ to justify exclusionary urban development and gentrification policies, arguing that a renewed notion of ‘spatial politics’ is needed in the art field in order to understand the social production of art and debates about art in the public sphere. This book focuses primarily on the 1980s, but was influential in the 1990s in a critique of public art practices. See in particular section 3, Public Space and Democracy.
