The City After Hours

End: Jun 6, 2017 2:00:00 PM

UCL Festival of Culture 2017
As the notion of London as a 24 hour city is debated, we consider the way in which cities have been the loci of inclusion and exclusion, policing and controlling, after-hours. The historical relevance of the night-time curfew is considered in relation to contemporary policing of the night-time, addressing, for example, the implications of the state of emergency declared in France following the attacks in Paris in November 2015 which allows for the imposition of curfews. The impact on the inhabitants of the city streets after hours is considered in relation to the increasing use of “hostile architecture” in public spaces.
