Citizen Manchester

Dan Dubowitz and Alan Ward

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Project artists Dan Dubowitz and Alan Ward were given privileged and open access to witness this transformational period in the life of two iconic buildings: Manchester Town Hall Extension and Manchester Central Library
  • Through large-format photographs and interviews taken and conducted over a period of eighteen months, they captured the moment when the city's citizens and workers had been locked out and the spaces were being stripped bare; revealing both a glimpse of what they had been and what they might become
  • The artwork provides insights on the reciprocal relationship between people and place, and reveals how the refurbishment of a building can go far beyond physical refurbishment, questioning the relationships between a city, its citizens and place
