Contested Cities project
The below collection was curated by my son, Alex Schafran, who studies cities.
Alex Schafran: This collection was designed as part of the Contested Cities project, which examines different ways that cities and towns are being fought over all over the world. My mother's urban collages have long been my favorites, and many are subtly (or overtly) political, and I have long wanted to put them together. They cover everything from art to politics to religion to open space to architecture, all of which are part of contested cities and regions.
