Screening Creativity and the Capitalist City: the Struggle for Affordable Space in Amsterdam

Creativity and the Capitalist City: the Struggle for Affordable Space in Amsterdam
Film screening and Q+A with Director and fellow INURIAN Tino Buchholz

28 July 2011
4pm – 5.30pm

Christopher Ingold Ramsay Lecture Theater, UCL, 20 Gordon Street, London WC1H 0AJ

This film is a two year project (2009-11) and independent production with support of the University of Groningen, Medienprojekt Wuppertal and Inura, and features the economic geographer Professor Jamie Peck.  In the film, the search for creativity is linked to existential struggles for affordable housing and working space in Amsterdam. Yet it is more than a local documentary on Amsterdam, exploring the implications of the latest urban re-/development patterns in advanced Western capitalist cities.
