Taking Place

‘taking place’ evolved from a conversation between two, five then ten artists, architects and writers. ‘taking place’ is an ongoing space of discussion, investigation and exchange in which to look to imagine and speculate on new directions and strategies in feminine politics and architectural/art practice.

The first event took place at the University of North London, 22/24 November 2001.
