The latest issue of Scapegoat: Architecture / Landscape / Political Economy extends and departs from the investigations of 02: Materialism, examining the histories, influences, and strategies of realism in architecture and landscape. Join contributors and members of the editorial board to celebrate the launch of Scapegoat 03: Realism, which exposes realist assumptions and fallacies, and persuasively defends the necessity of a new realist practice, while pointing to the impossibility of fixing realism as a conceptual method.
The issue contains reflections and projects on diverse themes, such as: Kazimir Malevich’s tenure in the town of Vitebsk; an interview with Krzysztof Wodiczko; a brief history of police kettling; the realism of Jia Zhangke’s films; photographic realism in the American desert; the temporality of riots; the antinomies of realism in Post-War Italian architecture, and many others.
