“The Right to The City: The Entitled and the Excluded”

The Urban Reinventors Image Galleries

“The Right to The City: The Entitled and the Excluded” is the first experimental collective gallery on “The Urban Reinventors”. The gallery features works of professional and amateur photographers, artists and reporters from different backgrounds and walks of life, all of whom have used photography as a medium to portray through images - in different ways and through different perspectives - the conditions of contemporary urban living.

The contributors have been exploring different facets of the contemporary urban condition - describing, through their visual fragments, broader issues of great relevance in urban research, such as the increasing social polarization and spatial segregation within cities and regions, the rise of enclaves for the wealthy and ghettos for the poor, the gentrification and the upgrading of formerly low-income areas in booming downtowns, the increasing disenfranchisement of the poor and the marginal.

The gallery has been built in over a year lapse by means of a flickr.com public group which (as of November 2009) has collected about 4 hundreds contributions from dozens of members, and which is constantly being updated and looking for new contributions. From the European downtowns to the Southamerican slums, from the gated communities in Florida to the squatters settlements in Berlin, the group has collected a high-quality selection of images describing the places of entitlement and exclusion, and the people who have benefited, and those who have been excluded, from the "Right To The City".
