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 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 anarchist utopia, a consequence of automation.

Supported by the Hope Scott Trust.
