Detroit is a capital vacuum, rendering both land and object valueless. The shrinking city left an oversized bureaucracy and infrastructure, creating a negative feedback loop of entropy that sucked over 36,000 properties onto the city’s books. While the dysfunctional city government continues to falter, residents and non-profits are burdened with picking up the slack. Sub_City seeks to take over Detroit-owned property through spatial acts of subversion by ignoring the political system and creating a new, autonomous city within the city by aligning residents, non-profits, and creative practitioners to wage an invisible, non-violent war on the city through a diversion of capital. Detroit is not a problem to solve. It is a problem to ignore.
