This book questions the why and how of setting up artistic and social practices in interstitial spaces in the city, urban cracks. Urban
cracks are conceptualised as in-between time spaces, characterised by an apparent void, where different logics meet and conflict.
In this book, the authors discuss the potential of localised artistic and social practices that work with the context of urban cracks, and therefore bring forth significant political meanings.
