Heterotopias in Scotland

Based on Other Spaces by Foucault and his concept of Heterotopias. “the heterotopia is capable of juxtaposing in a single real place several spaces, several sites that are in themselves incompatible” Foucault references gardens as being an example of Heterotopias as they try to condense multiple real spaces into one idea of a space.

Artists: Alex Kelly, Charlotte Lodge, Joanna Helfer, Kirsty Dalton, Lucie Rachel, Luis Vasquez La Roche, Nikolai Noel, and Wasia Ward.

Sharing Not Hoarding is an experimental public art project located in Dundee’s Waterfront Development. It was launched in 2015 as part of the Dundee Commons Festival. The project encourages public participation in the Waterfront Development by engaging with artists and community partners to reflect on Dundee’s past, present and future development. Other Spaces is the current featured exhibition at Slessor Gardens.
