Urbanization is a system of power and knowledge, and today’s city functions through the expansive material infrastructures of the urban order. In The Urban Apparatus, Reinhold Martin analyzes urbanization and the contemporary city in aesthetic, socioeconomic, and mediapolitical terms. He argues that understanding the city as infrastructure reveals urbanization to be a way of imparting functional, aesthetic, and cognitive order to a contradictory, doubly bound neoliberal regime.

Running since 2009 and created to develop links between the financial industry and creative practitioners from around the world, this year the Future of Money Design Award invites artists and designers to imagine a counterfactual scenario from the history of money that reimagines how money could have developed if things had gone differently.

What if Aristotle had died before writing his observations of the ancient Greek currency system, would Plato's money free utopias have become more influential? How might electronic payments evolved, if western union had not successfully created a monopoly surrounding the telegraph?

Once or twice a year, the team Odyssey Works chooses one participant to undergo a transformation, to embark on an Odyssey. Interwoven into the participant's life, the Odyssey can contain art, architecture, and design objects, friends and family, or a group of complete strangers.

Participants have been buried alive, kidnapped by people in pink onesies, and even in the case of one participant--novelist Rick Moody--found himself in Canada not knowing what he was doing there until he discovered a cello concert in a field playing just for him. Some Odysseys are short. Some go on for months.
