Abstract

The catalogue to the research project of the same name. The project catalogue is in four volumes.

Volume 1 The Exhibition - documents the exhibition and includes reproductions of the 10 explanatory panels from the exhibition, a transcript of the gallery talk at the opening, plus 5 interpretative texts by Lorens Holm.

Volume 2 The Geddes Archives - reproduces the Geddes documents borrowed from the archives of the Universities of Dundee, Edinburgh, and Strathclyde, and includes our interpretative caption notes. We have not sought copyright permission for reproducing these images.

Volume 3 The Geddes Institute - reproduces the panels by the 8 affiliates of the Geddes Institute whose projects were included in the exhibition, plus the introductory panels that accompanied each project.

Volume 4 The Talks - documents the program of public lectures that contextualised the exhibition. The contributors were chosen because each – in different ways – has been an activist for change in the social and material environments of the city. Geddes was nothing if not an activist. This volume includes 10 texts with images plus an introductory statement on activism and advocacy.
