Research Question | How can design research understand and respond to alliances between neoliberalism and Evangelical populism? This work documents an investigation into how installations and spatial artefacts might be designed for the purpose of activating a critique examining the relationship between neoliberalism and Evangelical populism. A critique will be developed through the analysis of concepts, tactical spatial configurations and affective spatial devices present in subversive works of art and in the spatial archetypes of the Evangelical Protestant right. The potential use of spatial artifices in the design of subversive spaces will be explored. Used in this way, spatial artifices may aid in the transmission of cultural replicators. The work of subversive practitioners who operate in the field of art, architecture and literature, is surveyed for the potential visual translation of ideas and tactics for activating subversive spaces and artefacts that question the neoliberalism of the Evangelical Protestant right.
