Atlas of a global situation

Researching Venice with a global perspective.
Migropolis is two things in one: A survey on the global city using the urban territory of Venice as an exemplary paradigm that makes it possible to anticipate urban escalations to come.
And: An experimental investigation of the means and measures of the spectacle to find out if visual media allow an understanding of society.
A project by W. Scheppe and the IUAV, published by Hatje-Cantz
