Jaspar is a London-based artist, whose work explores the role images play in urban planning, social space and everyday praxis. His research interests are situated between art making, curating and writing and draw from the fields of architecture, design, urban studies, human geography, philosophy, cinema and media studies, spatial theory and economics. Here he has focused on the conflicting ideological frameworks embodied in representations of modernity, urban renewal and regeneration as a means to better understand how art practice can redefine the successive cycle of masterplans and regeneration schemes that determine the cultural life of our cities. Much of his recent work has taken the form of printed matter (photo-essays, collaborative city guides and edited publications). Since 2000 Joseph-Lester have been involved in a series of international curated exhibitions; authored, co-authored and edited a number of published books and articles for journals; and has played a leading role in organising international conferences, symposia and a number of other public events. Key to this work is the development of platforms and frameworks for art that contribute to developing new ways of thinking social and life experiences for the future. This long term research has led to being invited to be a Principal Investigator on the Horizon 2020 SPACEX project.
