Who Makes The City

peripatetic web-magazine platform run in collaboration with a changing roster of hosts. Consisting of commissioned talks from international thinkers and practitioners and in-situ conversations in various cities focussed on questions of the contemporary urban condition.


Sol Archer (1983) is a Netherlands based artist working through collaborations with professional and non-professional groups, considering the encounter as a space of production. Frequently employing video as an apparatus for producing a doubling of experience, productive of work through collective act, and through the work productive of new collectivities, new ways of being together.
