Real Cities

Modernity, Space and the Phantasmagorias of City Life

by Pile, Steve

Description
Drawing inspiration from the work of Walter Benjamin, Sigmund Freud, Georg Simmel, this book explores the dream-like and ghost-like experiences of the city, best described as phantasmagorias. These phantasmagorias, while commonplace, are far from self-evident. Real Cities explains how the phantasmagorias of modern city life are experienced and produced.
