Seminars and workshops with Dr Gulsen Bal and guest speakers:
(08.10.2012, 12.10.2012, 10.12.2012, 17.12.2012)

Bal, the founding director of Open Systems, will introduce the current field of contemporary creative engagement with changing spatial and cultural realities. This will include some seminars/workshops and discussions along with an introduction to a series of curatorial projects that explores the political dimension of the public space as well the use of connection zones.
As Rancière explains in Aesthetics is Politics, "beyond these flaws, arguing that strategies of play, encounter, archive and mystery have underlying political motivations helps to usefully broaden the field and the manners in which these political aesthetics can be located, and stress the way in which, in the aesthetic regime, political aesthetics is always a result of the interchange between a work of art and its interpretation." There lies of course the potentiality of 'other' worlds in motion leading to pluralistic approaches.

Programm "The Bring In Take Out - Living Archive"

'Architecture Exhibitions', lectures and seminars with Elke Krasny and guest speakers:
(12.11.2012, 19.11.2012, 03.12.2012)
This part of the course will focus on a critical re-reading of the history of architecture exhibitions in the 20th and 21st century. Architecture poses a significant challenge to the medium of exhibitions. Architecture needs to be re-presented and mediated in order to become transformed according to the logics of display. Sketches, drawings, models, photographs and text have been the standard components on which architecture exhibitions tend to fall back onto.
A process of mediatization and re-presentation took place to transform architecture into exhibitions which became discursive platforms defining trends, styles, phenomena and issues in architectural production and architectural thinking throughout the 20th and 21st century. The course will look at specific examples of this formation of the field of architectural theoretization and categorization by way of exhibition-making. These examples range from The International Style: Architecture since 1922, curated by Philip Johnson, Alfred H. Barr, Jr. and Henry-Russell Hitchcock at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Built in USA 1932 - 1944 curated by Elizabeth B. Bock at the Museum of Modern Art in New York to an overview of the Architecture Biennales in Venice and the Hong Kong & Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.

Ziel der Lehrveranstaltung ist ein produktiver Wissenstransfer zwischen den räumlichen Alltagserfahrungen der Studierenden, künstlerischen Methoden, kuratorischer Praxis und kulturanalytischer Perspektivierung.

Diese Lehrveranstaltung untersucht Bildwelten als Wirklichkeitsproduzent, was sowohl die Weitergabe von Bedeutungen betrifft als auch die Medienqualitäten, die in eine Umstrukturierung von Erfahrungs- und Erlebnisweisen involviert sind.
