Inaugurated in 2009, Cities Methodologies is an initiative to showcase innovative methods of urban research from across UCL and the wider urban research community. Through peer-reviewed exhibits and events, it draws together undergraduate, masters, and doctoral research, alongside work produced by academics and other researchers and practitioners. Cities Methodologies promotes cross- and inter-disciplinary work and this year showcases recent research on a wide range of cities including Detroit, Paris, London, Johannesburg, Mumbai and Beirut.

This year, through a public call for participants, we particularly‚ though not exclusively‚ welcomed proposals on:

• Collaborative/public methods for urban research

• Mega events and urban change

• Housing and dishousing

Visitors to Cities Methodologies will encounter diverse methods of urban research in juxtaposition – from archival studies to digital media experiments, practice-led art, architectural and design work to film-making, soundscapes, games and public sculpture.

(in)Visible bodies: Migrants in the city of gold (curated by Johan Thom)

‘(in)Visible bodies: Migrants in the city of gold’  is a curated selection of three art projects produced by artists from and about the city of Johannesburg. The concept of ‘migration’ (as the movement of bodies from one place to another) is used as a framework through which to rethink the complex interplay between what is rendered in/visible by the symbolic, economic, political and historic dimensions of the city of Johannesburg.  The three works are ‘Challenging Mud – after Kazuo Shiraga’ (2008) by Johan Thom, the ‘Hilbrow/Dakar project’ (2007-8) by Hobbs/Neustetter and the ‘Trolley project’ (2007) by Ismail Farouk.
