dc.description Provisional Research is a digital journal publishing the findings of Provisions research projects and residencies. Provisional Research seeks to provide free and accessible public information on creative projects, sharing strategies and practices for social change with an ever-expanding readership.
dc.description.abstract In June 2012, Provisions Library sent four DC-based creative researchers to Berlin to source ideas for the Dupont Underground, an abandoned streetcar station and tunnel beneath Dupont Circle in the heart of Washington DC. Their creative process and research projects culminated in an exhibition at the Goethe-Institut DC. The exhibition considered the poetics, politics, and possibilities of public development in these uncannily connected capitals. This publication compiles their ideas, principles, challenges and concepts, offering examples for any efforts seeking to resurrect abandoned infrastructures in the name of cultural development.
