Peggy Buth: Vom Nutzen der Angst
The Politics of Selection

The book The Politics of Selection recounts a political history of our cities and suburbs. For the artist urban space is a place where the social and the economic overlap, at once forming and deforming the space. In three chapters Peggy Buth reports on social utopias and economic interests, on the attempt to include and exclude people, on hope, and on discrimination and defamation. Her artistic research focuses on the suburbs of Paris, social housing projects and streets in the US state of Missouri, and former working-class neighbourhoods in the Ruhr region, in the north of Essen and in parts of Duisburg.
