2008-12-02 | HONG KONG A DÉJÀ DISPARU? / SANDRA LOURENÇO
Hong Kong as a space of disappearance shows how the city dealt with dependency by developing a tendency toward timelessness and placelessness, a tendency to live its own version of the ‘floating world’ without the need to establish stable identities. It is almost impossible to get any sense of its urban space through the merely visible. It is as if it were necessary to hold on same familiar for reassurance that the city is real.
