For Breezeblock #29, editors María Victoria Londoño-Becerra, Juana Salcedo, and María Mazzanti discuss with FA editor René Boer his upcoming book: The Smooth City*.Framed in the conversations around discomfort and space*, the editors talk about how the homogenization of urban environments and the mechanisms that maintain the smoothness of the contemporary city remove the possibility for non-normative subjects to inhabit it.   The conversation unfolds around topics of whiteness, public space, queerness and how to live together.
