In our world of flows, networks have become the most powerful tool in how we organise our lives: Networks dominate the rise of global capitalism and its shadow economies, the emergent forms of extrastate control and resistance movements, the worldwide expansion of consumerism and communitarian subcultures. The struggle between network formations produces a space that is both fragmented and contested, yet testifies to the creativity of its inhabitants.

Networked Cultures traces these conflictual negotiations in dialogue with artists, architects, curators and theorists whose work explores possibilities for a multi-inhabitation of territories and narratives across cultural, social or geographic boundaries. Through their shared experiences and accompanying case studies, this book offers an insight into the complex spatial and social realities of globalisation, from city-like informal markets in Moscow and the post-war self-urbanisation in Kosovo to the border economies of the Mediterranean and the parallel worlds of today’s burgeoning megacities.
