Re/construction brings together artists, two community groups and two curators to reread the legacy of Jack Mundey and the Green Bans. Jack Mundey's whole life was one giant spatial project. But he didn't need art to do what he did, he had the context of the union movement. Discussing Jack Mundey's concept of green bans and public space as a 'spatial project' in an art context, is implying a common link between the union movement and art, which makes us aware of the way both offer room for alternative thinking or challenges to mainstream thinking.
