HELPING YOU ACCESS PROPERTY YOU CAN'T AFFORD!! Asset Arrest is a podcast series in which each episode is set around a viewing of a different luxury property; led by artist Laura Yuile (posing as a potential buyer), with a different invited guest each week. For each episode, a conversation before and after the viewing is recorded, with guests talking about their own work and interests; as well as covering more general topics such as urban regeneration, the neoliberal city, housing crises, globalization, global blanding, authenticity, exclusion, and community. Through this series, Laura hopes to review, map, archive and intervene in the spreading of the type of “generic” luxury property developments that are marketed to a global elite. Based in London, the podcast will travel to other cities, seeking to access their most exclusive spaces.
