My current project is entitled A Tale of Two (and more) Cities: London, redevelopment, regeneration and gentrification in visual media.
Since the early 1980s, film, video, television and documentary have testified the conflictual process of urban redevelopment in different areas of London, from the Docklands to the East End. I will investigate the way in
which visual productions influence the representations of the city in this process of radical change and how they connect to the public debate around urban regeneration, redevelopment and gentrification.
