Product Description

"Of Other Spaces is about how space affects human behavior and experience. The exhibition asks us to consider the ways in which spaces are charged with authority, and both serve and suppress our actions and ways of relating. The concept of "other spaces" is inspired by the philosophy of Michel Foucault, especially his thoughts on social relations and cultural practices expressed in the intersection of space, architecture, and history. In a rarely cited 1967 text by Foucault, entitled 'Of Other Spaces, Heterotopias', he introduces what he calls heterotopias--different or other spaces."

This catalogue was published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Of Other Spaces' curated by James Voorhies, organised by Bureau for Open Culture at Columbus College of Art & Design, February - April 2009.
