Is this OUR Edgware Road?
We, researchers from Westminster Academy, have formed a design and research collective, ‘moi’, in response to our time as participants in the Public Space Seminar at the Serpentine Gallery’s Centre for Possible Studies.
This pamphlet was developed during our residency there, in which we asked the question, ‘Is this our Edgware Road?’. What follows is our response to this question, proposed as a series of possibilities for the area that we hope will be heard.
Is this OUR Edgware Road? was produced using the online archive and publishing tool edgwareroad.org, created by Bombay-based media collective CAMP while in residence on the Edgware Road. It is part of the series, Studies on a Road, in which groups who took part in the Edgware Road Project from 2008–2016, have shared their studies of the area and reflections on the stakes of the project.
The Possible Studies imprint was developed through the Edgware Road Project. Initiated by Serpentine Galleries in 2008, the Edgware Road Project links local groups and international artists with people living and working in this area. The itinerant project base is the Centre for Possible Studies, home to screenings, events, a publishing imprint and an ongoing project archive. From 2016, the Possible Studies imprint will be housed at Church Street Library on a specially commissioned shelf dedicated to the local area.
