The 7th Kilometre Market, Odessa, Ukraine

This essay by Vera Skvirskaja and Caroline Humphrey discusses a vast marketplace of shipping containers on the outskirts of Odessa, Ukraine. It analyses the market as a kind of socio-mythical space and a ‘state within a state’  with its own specificities in relation to legal regimes, migration, sociality and the city.
