ASH at the ICA

ICA, London. Sat 19 Aug 2017

 


 Class War and ASH posters about housing

 

 The O J SImpson Prize is awarded annually by ASH

 ASH's Simon Elmer photographs part of their display

 Geraldine Dening of ASH contemplates the map showing social cleansing of council estates in London

 The estates are marked on the map with coloured pins - the majority of them red for Labour councils

 who govern most of London and are doing most of the social cleansing of council estates

 

 Alternative plans for various estates that show how regeneration could take place without social cleansing - but

 this wouldn't get councillors lavish hospitality, trips to Cannes and well paid jobs when they leave the councils

 Central Hill estate near Crystal Palace is superb planning and architecture and in fine structural condition. It should
 be Grade II listed but was turned down - possibly becuase of pressure from the developers who stand to make a

 killing, particularly because of its fine position on a hillside with views across the city.

 Some of the threatened estates took part in Open Gardens Day last year

 

 

 Some questions relevant to estate generation were on the wall

 Class War banner reflects the important role they have played in bringing housing issues into public debate
 particularly through their 'Poor Doors' series of protests at Aldgate

 

 

 

Social cleansing: RED for Labour, BLUE for Tory and YELLOW for Lib-Dem.
