Dimensions of Citizenship, the US Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, explores seven spatial scales: Citizen, Civitas, Region, Nation, Globe, Network, and Cosmos. These scales, telescoping from body to city to heavens, broadly position citizenship as a critical global topic. Commissioned installations by architects, landscape architects, artists, and theorists investigate spaces of citizenship marked by histories of inequality and the violence imposed on people, non-human actors, and ecologies.

In addition to the primary feature, Spirit of Space produced shorts highlighting each of the exhibitions. Watch each feature on Vimeo.
