    At 9 AM on November 5, 2018, a pair of buildings in central Marseille collapsed, taking the lives of eight people hailing from Algeria, the Comoros, France, Italy, and Tunisia. This devastating toll of urban decay reflects both the diversity of the district and the hardship of living in Marseille, a city marked for centuries by migration, poverty, and social struggle. Divided along ethnicity and class lines, with wealthy conservatives dominating the south and an energetic but pauperized community of immigrant origins in the north, Marseille highlights the tensions stemming from problematic governance, a lack of housing-stock maintenance, a constant influx of migrants, widespread privatization of services, and rapid, profit-driven, and destructive post-industrial urbanization

    Migrant Marseille: Architectures of Social Segregation and Urban Inclusivity examines this complex city through a series of case studies of its built environment, from Le Corbusier’s iconic Cité Radieuse to La Castellane, the impoverished public housing project that is the birthplace of football star Zinedine Zidane. The essays, photographs, and drawings illustrate the impact of migration on space, architecture, and territory. Migrant Marseille tells of an urban reality in which migration is present at every turn, and offers tactics and strategies to support social and spatial integration

    “Compiled by Fluxus artists Wolf Vostell and Dick Higgins, and first published by Higgins’ legendary Something Else Press in 1970, Fantastic Architecture anticipated the critiques launched by a new generation of visionary architects in the 1970s. In his introduction, Higgins argued that “architects … have only just begun to escape from the drawing board mentality,” and articulated the need for “creating space, which may or may not be functional, but which is at least relevant to the sensory environment in which we live. The economics of building has led to an aridity in our experience which is not consistent with the richness of our time.” Against this, Higgins and Vostell advocate the approach of polymath artists such as Kurt Schwitters, Raoul Hausmann, Erich Buchholz, John Cage and Buckminster Fuller. From their contemporaries and friends, artists such as Carolee Schneemann, Ben Vautier, Richard Hamilton, Douglas Huebler, Lawrence Weiner, Dennis Oppenheim, Jan Dibbets, Jean Tinguely, Robert Filliou, Daniel Spoerri, Geoff and Bici Hendricks, Philip Corner, Joseph Beuys, Ay-o, Claes Oldenburg and others also made contributions, which range from the visionary to the absurd to the political, from the epistolary to the outright manifesto. Joseph Beuys submitted a recommendation to raise the height of the Berlin Wall; Claes Oldenburg’s proposals included a colossal replacement for the Washington Obelisk and a monument for war heroes. Vostell and Higgins considered it the artist’s responsibility to research and revolutionize structures in space, recognizing that artists could reconceive buildings without the bureaucracy of government and urban planning. The missives and artworks made for this book show how much visionary architecture was intertwined with all facets of culture and critique. Fantastic Architecture is a prime example of a 1960s Fluxus artist’s book and of imaginative cross-media thinking.”
