Making Space    
online forumWednesday 12 January 2005, 7.30pm

Wren Room,
RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects)
66 Portland Place,
London W1B 1AD

The ResCen Research Associate Artists engaged in conversation with Doreen Massey, Professor of Geography, Open University for the public seminar ‘Making Space’. Doreen Massey co-founded and now co-edits Soundings: a journal of politics and culture. She has written extensively about ‘space’ and ‘place’, one of her most recent publications is For Space (London: Sage Publications, 2005).

Here she talked about her interests in the theorisation of 'space' and 'place' and her areas of research that include a critique of globalisation, regional uneven development, and the reconceptualisation of place. In her discussion she demonstrated that her modes of working are diverse: from the philosophical and largely conceptual through to the directly political. Together, the Research Associate Artists and Doreen Massey interrogated notions of space in relation to their individual practices. Areas of discussion included: material engagement with place; time/space and subjectivity/political responsibility; moving beyond surface space; and creating spaces for new thinking.

Guest speaker: Professor Doreen Massey, Open University, Milton Keynes
ResCen participating artists: Ghislaine Boddington, Shobana Jeyasingh, Richard Layzell, Rosemary Lee, Graeme Miller and Errollyn Wallen
Chair: Chris Bannerman, Head of ResCen
