dc.description.abstract Not untouched by a wider philosophical discourse, the design professions have over the last decades gone through what is often referred to as a “linguistic turn” (Rorty, 1967). A move away from foundationalist assumptions about ‘reality’ towards a recognition of the generative importance of signs and symbols, the turn has also involved what used to be spatial margins and borderlands. Not only has it brought into focus the everyday landscape of consumerism or suburban housing, but furthermore the more general spatial polemics of contemporary urbanity. Discussing three filmic interventions into urban discourse, the paper aims to bring out the rhetorical aspect of the turn, as it moves from signs to polemical agency. Actualizing a more agonizing, ‘in-yer-face’ communication, the paper also draws attention to the rhetorical and political implications of the turn, as a “thinking of the new disorder” (Rancière 2006:88). en_US
