Exotic Urbanism: Monu Issue 9

By August 27, 2008 One Comment

MONUa magazine on urbanism – is a unique bi-annual international forum for artists, writers and designers that are working on topics of urban culture, development and politics. Each issue collects essays, projects and photographs from contributors from all over the world to a given topic.

In the latest issue In this issue the nice people behind Monu have taken the deliberate risk of making ourselves look ridiculous by focusing its theme on “the exotic”, which is often seen as some sort of worn out, utterly out of date topic, immediately evoking images of colonialism and imperialism.

Its got us intrigued and we are going to wander down to Art Data, 12 Bell Industrial Estate, 50 Cunnington Street, London W4 5HB to pick up a copy.
