A Blast from the Past: MOVE: Sites of Trauma
"On May 13, 1985, police dropped a bomb on a west Philadelphia row house in an attempt to evict members of a radical organization known as MOVE. Eleven people were killed, 61 homes were destroyed, and around 250 people were left homeless.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the MOVE conflict is that it was marked by a concrete, physical spatiality," writes architect Johanna Saleh Dickson in 'Pamphlet Architecture 23: Move: Sites of Trauma'
8 part video documentary of the conflict on YouTube.
