The Roundabout Revolution

The Roundabout Revolution by Eyal Weizman and Samaneh Moafi establishes a relation between Gwangju in 1980 and the turmoil, civil strife, and revolutions that have shaken the Middle East since the Arab Spring: the parallel uniting many of these uprisings being that they all took place in and around traffic circles. The folly draws a line from roundabout revolution to post-revolutionary round table politics.
