Open for Discussion
As contemporary societies have come to increasingly acknowledge and embrace their diversity, the continued lack of representation and visibility in the realm of architecture must be addressed and questioned. Such scrutiny should not only attempt to understand these systemic conditions but also, and more importantly, to propose and develop possible solutions.
Firmly grounded in the Dutch context, this series of talks by the Curatorial Research Collective (CRC) will interrogate the particular conditions affecting architecture schools, the industry, professional practice, as well as the built environment. To understand the circumstances that have (wittingly or unwittingly) led to this condition, it is necessary to approach the issue from an even broader perspective in order to develop discipline-wide insights.
By reviving decades-old conversations and daring to imagine transformation beyond analysis, the CRC hopes to break through the impasse of what has been too often described as a veritable “circle of blame” and the surging trend towards righting injustices.
Speakers will be: Sjaron Minailo, Adeola Enigbokan, Lara Schrijver, Carlos Weeber, Nathalie Frankowski, Pnina Avidar, Adam Nathaniel Furman, Setareh Noorani, Félix Madrazo, Lada Hrsak, Lucas LaRochelle, Jeroen Geurts and more.
