Ihlein, L. M.. UnReal Estate. Collaborative artwork by Squatspace Collective exhibited in "The Right to the City" exhibition and arts project - Tin Sheds Gallery. 7 to 30 April. Sydney: 2011.


[extract] ZINNY: Can you tell us a bit about the real estate beauties you have advertised? What impact does it have on the city, these buildings being left empty for so long? DIEGO: SquatSpace has concerned itself with the polincs of space from the start, and in some ways the topic is what defines the group's trajectory. UnReal Estate is yet another playful look at the loop holes: buildings are left abandoned for speculation purposes, creating focus areas for urban renewals, while at the same time denying living possibilities.
