Three researchers affiliated with CUS - Letizia Chiappini, Anastasiya Halauniova, and Ying-Tzu Lin - have contributed to the 17th edition of Venice Architecture Biennale as bloggers-in-residence for the Austrian Pavilion. The book "Platform Urbanism and Its Discontents" is a result of the discussion about the fundamental transformation of urban space through platform technologies.
Members of the collective "Slutty Urbanism," Letizia Chiappini, Anastasiya Halauniova, and Ying-Tzu Lin contributed to the production of the book by writing a play “Glitches from the Pandemic.” The play explores a more-than-human constellation of exploitation, extraction, and ‘pleasurability’ of contemporary platform urbanism.
