Thinking Public Spaces

BY ANDRÉ SLEIMAN
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 10, 2014

In Thinking Public Spaces, André Sleiman tackles the oh-so-controversial issue of public spaces in Lebanon, and invites the audience to reflect upon the balance to be found between public and private property - and well, to "Move it!"

Defining the difference between what is public, and what is private, perhaps it is best to change that for the good of the public. Paid car parks, paid parks, paid beaches. These are just a few of the consequences of what it means to live in a place of private property.
