Empty Pockets

"Empty Pockets" opens a space for critical engagement with current urban development in Dublin City. Phibsborough Shopping centre’s redevelopment plan illustrates the current trend of transient accommodation developments in Dublin City. “Empty Pockets” utilises tropes of gentrification, to challenge these neoliberal urban developments which dispossess communities and deny ownership to its residents.

You are invited to respond to my research in the space, which explores architecture in its social and political dimension. Please purchase a zine, tee shirt or poster for your bedroom as a radical act of protest, proportional to the issues at hand.
