Art and architecture exist in relation to a specific social and cultural context. This statement is the starting point of the second talk of the interdisciplinary project „In Extenso – Erweitert“.
Curator Karima Boudou invites architect Laurence Kimmel and artist, poet and essayist Jimmie Durham to the Y-Table to explore the impact of architecture on the individual as well as the political and social interrelations that determine our relation- ship to the environment. To what extent do art and architecture represent these contexts and processes? How do they influence our actions? Can design techniques be generated from this?
Artistic direction of In Extenso – Erweitert: Marc Bembekoff (Independent Curator), Matthias Böttger (DAZ), Cathy Larqué (Bureau des arts plastiques, Institut français)
