Polytechnical Institute for the Study of the Expanding Field of Radical Urban Life

Ruth Maclennan

'The polytechnic is a forum for the study of urban life and a catalyst for the production of artworks that enable participants and audiences to imagine and enact formal, civic, surprising, critical, helpful, questioning, funny, difficult, spirited, profound, demanding, beautiful, fleeting or perpetual interactions with the city, with other places, and with each other, that do not involve commercial exchange.' Ruth Maclennan, 2007

Archway Polytechnic was realised with support from Arts Council England. Ruth was a Cocheme Fellow at Byam Shaw School of Art, Central Saint Martins in 2006/7.
