AbstractThis Special Issue focuses on the productive nature of the spectacle. Using spectacular urbanism as a lens, each paper considers how particular kinds of aesthetics, imaginaries and knowledges are mobilized in the ongoing production of urban space in contemporary cities and how these processes give shape to new social relations and aspirations. We posit that a reconsideration of the spectacle dialectic as conceived by Guy Debord is especially timely given the growing importance of the image and ascendance of the experience economy. These developments also suggest an urgent need for more trans-disciplinary enquiries that are able to connect different domains of knowledge required for analyzing contemporary urban processes.
