You Are a Citizen of Virtual Worlds

18:00  


Join Space Popular (Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg), curator James Taylor-Foster, and a group of guests to discuss ways in which we could engage in the burgeoning virtual sphere.

In time we shall become citizens of virtual, or virtually augmented, worlds. Whether you might agree with this position or not, it serves to highlight a number of possible repercussions for the fields of architecture and design, and raises important questions connected to citizenship (or the lack thereof) in future virtual environments.

Health and Behaviour

Referencing thinking rooted in the fields of psychology and cognitive science, what are the tools at our disposal to shape and manage our experience(s) of virtual worlds?

Building and Cities

While Space Popular: Value in the Virtual seeks to illustrate one possible avenue for a virtually augmented city, the possibilities laid before us today are multifaceted and complex. What does ‘building’ entail in virtual environments, and how does the notion of a ‘built environment’ translate between worlds?

Arts and Institutions

Exploring the spheres of arts and institutions, and the connections between them, how might we understand a future iteration of society—or societies—in parallel virtual worlds?

Location: Boxen

Free entry!
The presentations and discussions will be held in Boxen and in English.

Tensta Museums Branch: Book release

17:00  


Writings, Conversations, Scripts is the first survey of text works by Ane Hjort Guttu published in an English and Norwegian edition. A selection of text works from the publication in the form of readings and a moderated conversation.

Written between 2003 and 2018, the texts range from public statements, poetic short prose, and film scripts to reflections on the role of the artist and essays on art for children. With a special focus on the significance of ‘image-text constellations’, this anthology, edited by curator Rike Frank and designed by HIT, suggests connections between artistic writing and curatorial publishing.

This evening presents a selection of text works from the publication in the form of readings, a moderated conversation on the role of accessible language and art in Ane Hjort Guttu’s writings, as well as a guest contribution.

Panel discussion: Folkhemmet – and then what?

18:00  


Folkhemmet was both a political vision and a story with the ambition to embrace the entire Swedish society and all its citizens. What does that look like today? Conversation about the role of architecture and design as a unifying force.

What stories, buildings and places can we all gather/unite around today? Participating in a discussion about the role of architecture and design as a unifying force in an increasingly heterogeneous society are Lena Andersson (writer), Åsa Linderborg (historian and culture editor at Aftonbladet) and Helena Mattsson (professor in architectural history and theory, KTH).

Moderator: Daniel Golling

Symposium: Architectural History at ArkDes

00:00  


ArkDes has started a long-term project to research its collection in order to curate a new permanent exhibition on architecture in Sweden. To learn from ongoing research about the history of architecture in Sweden we are now arranging a symposium. Welcome to submit an abstract!

What is currently being investigated, how are different theories, concepts, and practice-based methods influencing historical studies, how is the increasing internationalisation shaping the field and, above all, how could such knowledge be invested in a contemporary display while also contributing to the scholarship around Swedish architecture at large?

The symposium will take stock and cover the full range and breadth of knowledge generated by architecture and the built environment and aims to address research on topics mainly concerned with the 20th century to the present day. ArkDes ask for scientifically well-researched proposals that analyse architecture as a cultural, aesthetic, or socio-political phenomenon.

Until 4 November you can submit an abstract. Call for Papers 

The symposium is being organised by ArkDes (Mikael Andersson and Christina Pech, research coordinator).
Please direct any questions to: bas@arkdes.se.
