Citadel

Exhibition

Citadel proposes ecological, alternate mechanised cities in transit, which evade the authority of traditional infrastructure and class. The exhibition includes a scaled model of a moving city, an audio piece authored by Gurcim Yilmaz, drawings/collages and public engagement events.

The 1960s cold war era witnessed Ron Herron’s idea of ‘Walking Cities’, conceived as ‘arks’ that would provide post-apocalyptic protection to surviving communities. As opposed to Herron’s revolutionary attitude, Citadel depicts a slowly-evolving socialist utopia, a consequence of automation.

Supported by the Hope Scott Trust.
