Research Practices on Place

May 13th 2019


Through three basic formats—lectures, workshops, and live-research—this public event will introduce different forms of inquiry on places, spaces, topographies, environments, architectures and habitats. Because all existence happens in space, all forms of human and nonhuman life are confronted with the spatial contingencies of the present, from rapidly changing environments that we inhabit to the transformation of the conception and articulation of places. This event aims at showing how different practices of artistic research contribute to address, perceive and re-imagine these issues.
