"State of Tyranny" unveils the methods and tools of urban design that seek to disable public agency in the name of public safety. The exhibition reorients our understandings of the power of the city and state—and the architectures they employ—through an installation in Storefront's gallery space and a series of walking tours through Lower Manhattan called the Tyranny Trail.
The "Tyranny Trail" situates the objects and tools of tyranny locally, providing a new lens through which seemingly innocuous elements of buildings and neighborhoods are illuminated to participants as directly harmful to collective, communal, and politically active public life.
