Psychogeography and Ground Zero

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter I want to discuss a psychogeographical project conducted at the main site of the horrific and monstrous September 11th 2001 attacks in New York, U.S.A. I will explain how I drew on the situationist practice of psychogeographical walking and why the ideas of detournement, spectacle and psychogeography are important. In recent years in my research, I have connected and considered this work in relation to the current memorialization of the Ground Zero site, to current political events (i.e. the on-going war on ‘terrorism’, the banking crisis, Occupy, and more recently the Charlie Hebdo events) as well as in relation to the question of how my research in psychology should connect with political practice and social change.
