Taisiia Reshetnik – The Undesirables
Royal Academy of Art, The Hague | Graphic Design

‘The Undesirables’ is a fictional story, based on the history of Utrecht Central Station. Privatisation and securitisation of public spaces change their political meaning–the entrance is not by right, but by permission. On one hand current solution (‘supervision and enforcement’) is aiming to make urban environment safe, but on the other, it’s turning it into a space of increasing discrimination, where every individual is treated as a customer and at the same time–potential criminal.
