Abstract

The Christchurch City Council election of 2013 provides a compelling case study through which to consider the interaction between politics and city space. On the one hand, through the careful placement of campaign posters, politics encroached on the physical terrain of the city. On the other hand, candidates included in their campaign material multitudinous references to 'Christchurch the city,' demonstrating the extent to which the physical environment of the post-disaster city had become central to local politics. © 2014 Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU) Press Technika.
