1·Lectures with Haas&Hahn: Painting Urbanism

Thursday 05 March 2015, 20:00 - 21:30 hrs.
Academy of Architecture
Waterlooplein 211-213
1011 PG Amsterdam

Artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dré Urhahn create community art by painting entire neighborhoods, and involving those who live there - from the favelas of Rio to the streets of North Philadelphia. At the invitation of 1·Lectures, they present a selection of recent and current projects, focusing on the topic of 'Painting Urbanism'.
According to Haas&Hahn themselves, 'Painting Urbanism resides in the intersection between land art, supergraphics, graffiti and urban planning. It takes the built environment as a continuous territory beyond notions of public and private; it activates the urban fabric introducing new spaces of intensity and collectivity beyond spatial conditions and denounces the underutilization of residual spaces of design and action within the city.'

Tickets are available in advance during regular opening hours at Arcam and on the night of the lecture from 7.30 PM at the door of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Waterlooplein 213 in Amsterdam. Academy students have free admission on presentation of their student card. The 1·Lectures program is in English.
