Exceptional/Exceptionable Space

An interdisciplinary collaboration that will explore the urban environment and its architectural and spatial composition in relation to Migration and Diaspora Studies.

Keynote Speaker: Keller Easterling (Yale)

“Massive global systems — meta-infrastructures administered by public and private cohorts, and driven by profound irrationalities — are generating de facto, undeclared forms of polity faster than any even quasi-official forms of governance can legislate them — a wilder mongrel than any storied Leviathan for which there is studied political response”

— Keller Easterling

“What then is Exceptional Space?

A migrant ship afloat outside Thailand?

Turned away, turned to where?”
