AREA Chicago continues to be a source of much inspiration and we continue to distribute each new thematic issue. This one asks: "Where are living now?" and documents some important Chicago housing struggles. There is a LOT in this issue, as always, but some key subject divisions focus on: Housing Histories, Notes from the Current Crisis, The CHA (with a great account of the CHAos art interventionist project, Gentrification in Pilsen, and a group of seven essays under the banner "Making It Work."
More from the publisher:
AREA Issue #13: Home Fronts, Housing Struggles explores the contested ground where we live and have lived: the history and current state of housing in Chicago and the political, personal, and imaginative meanings that accompany these physical spaces and the struggles for them. The issues themes include stories and histories of housing in Chicago; the CHAs Plan for Transformation and its ongoing aftermath; current struggles in Chicago around foreclosure and eviction, detention, and uneven development; housing alternatives and the labor of care; and the effects of gentrification in the Pilsen neighborhood.
