2001 Vera List Center Fellow Margarita Gutman speaks with leading urban scholars William Morrish and Saskia Sassen about her new book Buenos Aires: The Power of Anticipation. Itinerant Images of a Metropolitan Future in the First Centennial. This is the first book that comprehensively examines the imagination of the urban future of Buenos Aires. The volume contains close to two hundred images selected from over seven thousand publications which circulated in Buenos Aires between 1900 and 1920. The diversity, creativity, and humor of the images express what the citizens of Buenos Aires expected from a promising urban future. Moderated by David Scobey.
