The Academy of Architecture has invited activist-designer Selçuk Balamir to be Artist in Residence for the 2021-2022 academic year. This year’s topic will be “From the Shell of the Old". What this cryptic title means will be revealed at the start of the Winter School.
Selçuk holds a PhD around the topic of "Unsustaining the Commodity-Machine: Commoning Practices in Postcapitalist Design". He is a postcapitalist designer, commoning researcher and climate justice organizer. Selçuk works at the intersections of creative production, radical politics, and ecological transition. He is specialized in strategic communications, community building and 'making social change irresistible'.
The Winter School will be held from June 30 till July 8, in the summer of 2022.
