Street By Street, Block By Block is a new publication produced by Goleb – in collaboration between Taf Hassam and Roel Griffioen – that reflects upon the current urban strategies and utopian roots of Amsterdam’s New-West. This work of critical realism emerged against the backdrop of Jeremiah Day’s project around Hannah Arendt’s 1961 essay ‘The Crisis in Culture: Its Social and Its Political Significance’, co-hosted by Hassam at the independent art space Goleb, and included Griffioen as a key contributor to the seminar. With the book as a point of departure, Jeremiah Day will interview the two authors in a wide-ranging dialogue that will consider the meaning of ‘independence’ in cultural practice, touch upon the work of Hannah Arendt, and consider the history and present of Amsterdam as a cultural centre.
