Propland: Reprogramming Television Centre, is a collection of critical essays and speculative writings by students of the Critical Writing in Art & Design MA programme at the Royal College of Art. Propland serves as a platform for writing, where the legacies of an area, an institution, and a building, can be taken up and configured in new ways. Here lies Television Centre, former home of the BBC, amid a scatter of prop warehouses and costume stores. A façade junkyard, a museum of appearances, Propland teems with things flimsy, fabricated and faked. Here is a stage for a revolving cast of institutions and developers, enlisting and excluding communities, as best fits their dreams.
