Abstract

Throughout the winter of 2015, young people from Westminster Academy, artist collective Febrik (Mohamad Hafeda and Reem Charif) and the Serpentine Galleries Education Team worked together to investigate the use and regulation of public space on and around Church Street, North London.

The collective worked together for four months, producing a series of interventions in public space. These experimental actions and filmed sketches are documented in Action of Street / Action of Room. The publication charts the group's critical investigations into public space using four frames:

Editing the Site What is public space? Who is it for and where does it start?

Pushing the Limit Can we physically test what is possible in public space?

Crossing Between Can we change spatial and social hierarchies and arrangements?

Speculating on Change Could fictional scenarios provoke relevant discussions about the future of Church Street?
