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.

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.

The symposium is free of charge and includes a light lunch and coffee.
As the number of places are limited, please register before December 11 by sending an email to bas@ arkdes.se.

The symposium is being organised by ArkDes (Mikael Andersson and Christina Pech, research coordinator). Any further questions should also be directed to bas@ arkdes.se.

Tensta Museum’s Branch: Conversation with Ricardo-Osvaldo Alvarado

18:00  


Hanna Nordell, producer at Tensta konsthall, in conversation with the Tensta resident Ricardo-Osvaldo Alvarado about El Complejo and Alvarado’s current research.

The Tensta resident Ricardo-Osvaldo Alvarado worked at the Panguipulli Forestry Complex, Chile’s most ambitious forestry complex during the Salvador Allende period (1970–73). Ricardo-Osvaldo Alvarado is one of the few who survived the coup in 1973 and his story is part of the film El Complejo: Territorio liberado, by Claudia Del Fierro. Alvarado was detained for four years in prison after the coup in Chile and was deported to Sweden in 1977.

Ricardo-Osvaldo Alvarado has worked for 30 years for the city of Stockholm. He has worked locally, nationally, and internationally on several projects aimed at creating conditions for a participatory democracy.

In conversation with Hanna Nordell, he speaks about his work in the forestry industry and how he is currently conducting research about El Complejo, which includes finding and interviewing the few people who still can speak about what happened.
