Abstract

This DIY landmark tour is an alternative micro tour of a small area of Corporation St in North Belfast. The landmarks in question are seemingly unorthodox and frequently temporary. However they reflect some of the detail of this peripheral location which straddles Belfast city centre and the industrial dock area. This tour can be taken with or without a guide, just use the drawings to locate the landmarks and see if they are still there. Enjoy!O'Beirn's work frequently looks at the ways in which citizens come to know and shape their cities, the places where they live and work. In the past she has collected informal nicknames for city spaces, urban myths, and hand-drawn maps of the routes that people find through their cities. This project is part of ‘Some Actions Around The Centrifugal Book of Europe. The Centrifugal Book of Europe is a 'map' of the social, cultural and political space of contemporary Europe, and of the phantasmic Europes that may yet be called into being. The members of Centrifugal are artists, educators, architects and theorists who have come together to investigate the spatial, political and economic forces producing contemporary ideas of Europe. Centrifugal Sequence VI is funded by the University of Ulster, Cultural Development Fund
