This issue of Scapegoat Journal proposes an active and creative unmanagement of the night. Night drags architecture and landscape into the realm of temporality. The hidden, illicit, clandestine, lunatic, and aquatic are folded into the night. How can we “take back the night” while tending its oceanic depths? What tools do we need to counter the exploitation of the night as real estate? We watch the management of night, as an object of investment, growing, see it increasingly understood as a site of production and a horizon of consumption. What remains for the dreamer when night is pulled into the light of day? Contemporary debates about the urban night complicate each other, from dark sky movements to activist movements calling for safety and accessibility. Night extends a conversation begun in Eros as to the architectural potentials of the less-than-conscious. In light of anti-capitalist, anarchist, ecological, feminist, queer, and post-colonial critiques we remember the night as a source of creative fecundity. (eds)
