During the first weekend of the Winter School 2020, the first- and second-year students from the Academy of Architecture participated in performative conversations that were developed by Artist in Residence Building Conversation. They subsequently received more information about Dialogical Artworks and Relational Aesthetics. They have now been asked to develop their own Dialogical Artwork in ten different groups, in which the relationship between space and conversation is examined further. Each group will set to work on developing and researching a form of conversation/intervention. Students will be encouraged at various moments during the creative and thought process to reflect and enter into conversation with each other.
Markus Appenzeller, Head of Urbanism, about his choice for this Artist in Residence: Bybringing in Building Conversation, we try to connect space and communication and also making direct links between our disciplines and the new experience that our students will undoubtedly gain in order to ultimately become better designers.
On Friday, January 17, the final results of the Winter School 2020 can be seen and experienced at the Academy of Architecture. There will be an opening in the canteen at 16:00 hrs. Afterwards, continuous presentations from nine different groups can be seen and experienced in various places in and outside the building. The tenth group will provide a final presentation at the Academy of Theatre and Dance. You will receive the detailed timetable during the opening. You can also check our Facebook and Instagram account.
It is thanks to the Artist in Residence programme of the Amsterdam University of the Arts that we have been able to welcome Building Conversation as Artist in Residence for the study year 2019-20
