Is democracy spatial? How are the physical aspects of our cities, houses, streets, and public spaces - the borders, the neighborhoods, the monuments - bearers of our values? In a world of intensifying geo-economic integration, extreme financial and geopolitical volatility, deepening environmental crises, and a dramatic new wave of popular protest against both authoritarian government and capitalist speculation, cities have become leading sites for new claims on state power and new formations of political subjectivity.

The book Ethics of the Urban. The City and the Spaces of the Political brings together perspectives from history, sociology, art, political theory, planning, law, and design practice to explore the urban spaces of the political. A selection of contemporary photography from around the world offers a visual refl ection of this timely investigation.
