Some really interesting pieces. Below are the links to individual pieces and this is from the introduction by Deborah Cowen:
In the sample of work below, you will find creative engagement with infrastructure in its seemingly banal and innocuous forms, like the jersey barrier, or the airport washroom. Some authors focus instead on the affective, intimate, and aspirational dimensions of infrastructure in engagements with im/mobility and undocumented youth, Palestinian homes, and anti-colonial artistic practice. One author challenges popular and professional conceptions of transit efficiency by engaging infrastructure from their perspective and experience of dis-ability. A number of pieces address questions of force and violence through engagements with the infrastructures of petroleum extraction, the construction of national borders, colonial scientific observatories, and the internment of racialized peoples. Together, the essays examine infrastructure in the making and begin to rethink how intimacy, law, family, territory, able bodiedness, and race produce and require specific infrastructures to work.
