This calls for a celebration: Ten years Visual Culture Programme at UT Vienna! Congratulations to one of the most interesting programmes related to the field of architecture and social research. What could be a better reason to host an international conference?
Space RE:solutions has started yesterday and is ongoing up to Saturday 23, 2010. The programme is packed with international theoreticans and practicers and highly recommendable for everybody interested in a critical use and understanding of (…) the dynamics between emergent spatial phenomena and new modes of theoretical inquiry. Examining the blurring roles of intervention and research, the conference seeks to debate how critical and creative work in Visual Culture negotiates unexpected transitions and oscillations between individual and collective, real and virtual, center and periphery, activism and academy. (…)
What has emerged over the last decade as one of the most significant aspects of work in Visual Culture is a persistent desire for both a critical sensitivity toward its theoretical underpinnings and an experimental elasticity in its methodological approaches. This drive is giving rise to a plethora of new investigative practices and multi-directional engagements, particularly vis-a-vis matters of geopolitical urgency and their cultural and spatial implications.” (press release)
