Superstructures | Notes on Experimental Jetset / Volume 2
Any book that starts with a quote from The Jam's 'In The City' is alright by us. 'Superstructures' explores the role of the city as an infrastructure for language (and, conversely the role of language as an infrastructure for the city) through the lens of four historical movements - The Situationist International, Prove, Constructivism and the Post-Punk explosion.
An extensive Footnotes section includes writing from Owen Hatherley, Simon Reynolds, Ian F. Svenonius, Experimental Jetset, Brad Haylock, Dirk van den Heuvel, Lieven Lahaye, Samata Masato, Tom McDonough and many more.
Based on a research project (and accompanying exhibition) by Experimental Jetset,
Comes with the 'And Constructions' supplement.
Published by the ever-innovative Roma Publications, 'Superstructures' is a book on living that feels like a design object in itself.
