Making Room: Cultural Production in Occupied Spaces (edited by Alan W.Moore and Alan Smart) is an anthology of texts on art, media and aesthetic practice in the context of squatting, occupation and urban space activism. It includes pieces by activist researchers working between the academy and the movements they write about, journalistic first-person narratives by squatters, original photography, and interviews with artists, theorists and activists involved in struggles over urban space and creative production in the city.
Regardless of whether or not attempts to manage migration will effective, there are migrants or refugees around who need some form of housing or shelter now. This involves informal solutions that directly or indirectly tie into the decades-old European tradition of urban squatting.
