architecture and dissent


Architecture and Dissent (And from talking to action...)

The Berlage Institute (an architectural laboratory) have organised a series of Springtime public lectures on the theme of Architecture and Dissent.

This program of dialogues addresses the relations between architecture, power, and political dissent. By debating the cultural currents transforming contemporary daily life and, subsequently, shared spatial practices, this series of events promotes an open dialogue reflecting on today’s architectural condition.

Can architecture politically engage a global market-driven power structure? Is it possible to find alternative means of operating architecturally within this dominant system? How should architecture and urbanism address economic development, popular culture, and a design-driven consumerism? Does architecture—as both an intellectual discipline and a professional practice—contribute to stabilizing the inherent social inequalities of the contemporary city?

The talks can be viewed by live braodcast, heres the program

Tuesday 13 March Instant City: The Rise of Dubai

Tuesday 27 March Gated Communities in the Age of Extreme Individualism

Tuesday 17 April The Cult of Celebrity: Superstars Architect in the Academy

Tuesday 8 May Signs, Symbols, Spectacles: The Architecture of Global Corporations

Tuesday 15 May Living Outside: Uneven Metropolitan Development

Tuesday 12 June Beyond Degenerate Utopias?

Tuesday 19 June The Power of Sprawl

Previous mention here on EASA of Berlage Institute was when an attempt was made to widen the discussion in offering further answers to their 6 questions.
