The spatial turn in the Humanities and Social Sciences has produced a considerable body of work which re-assesses space beyond the fixed Cartesian co-ordinates of Modernity and the nation state. In the process, space has become a productive contested concept with methodological implications across and between disciplines. Following the theories of Lefebvre, de Certeau, Foucault and Bourdieu, the insidious roles played by space in economic, cultural, medical, scientific and geopolitical power relations have been interrogated, particularly in relation to the regulation of the body and normalization of subjectivity. Rather than conceiving of bodies as constantly rendered docile within the spaces of the post-industrial nation state, and the unwitting subjects of surveillance technologies, Radical Space reveals how activists and artists have deployed these theoretical tools to radicalize space. Bringing together contributions from academics across the humanities and social sciences together with creative artists this dynamically multidisciplinary collection demonstrates this radicalization of space through explorations of environmental camps, new explorations of psychogeography, creative interventions in city space and mapping the extra-terrestrial onto the mundane spaces of everyday existence.
