New City Reader
A new edition of the New City Reader will be published by İKSV in Istanbul in the months preceding the opening of the Design Biennale in October 2012. The New City Reader is a newspaper on architecture, public space and the city first published as part of The Last Newspaper, an exhibition held at the New Museum for Contemporary Art (New York City) in 2011. Each issue of the New City Reader is guest-edited by a contributing network of architects, theorists, and research groups who will bring their particular expertise to bear on the individual sections. In emulation of a practice common in the nineteenth century and still popular in parts of the world today, the New City Reader is designed to be posted in public for collective reading.
Conceived by Joseph Grima (Domus) and Kazys Varnelis (Netlab), this newspaper’s content is derived from a series of discussions, debates, interviews and research into the spatial implications of epochal shifts in technology, economy, and society today. The list of participating editors and date of launch of the first edition will be published shortly.
