New Imaginaries

New Imaginaries is a 2012 trilogy of art projects by Goethe-Institut that variously explored public space in Johannesburg. ACC was invited to partner the project with an academic component, to reflect upon it and synthesise findings, with Kim Gurney as researcher.

A symposium, New Imaginaries, New Publics was convened in February 2013 to explore city imaginings and notions of publicness, and a monograph, The Art of Public Space: Curating and Re-imagining the Ephemeral City, by Kim Gurney was published in 2015 (London: Palgrave). 

Watch this short documentary commissioned by Goethe-Institut on New Imaginaries.
