DAE- SOURCE #05: Memory and Monuments

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Design Academy Eindhoven – Source Lectures 2014

15 OCT 2014
10:00 – 16:00
DAE Auditorium
Emmasingel 14
5611 AZ Eindhoven

Instead of acknowledging the monument only as a fixed and consolidated typology, the symposium intends to discuss the power to recall memories and provoke thoughts – proper of monuments – into (designed) objects regardless of their size, value, exposure and durability. By reinterpreting their role that might not necessary be imagined as accessible by a community only but perhaps transferred to the context of people intimacy and privacy, it will also question the public nature of monuments.

The  Symposium is curated by Lorenzo Bini and Gennaro Postiglione, guest mentors at DAE-Contextual Design department.

IP Creating a Context #3: Krakow

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

The CREATING A CONTEXT Erasmus Intensive Programme (IP) Krakow 2014 brings together postgraduate Fine Art and Architect students from Newcastle University, Akademie der Bildenden Künste München, Politecnico Milano, Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam, Glasgow School of Arts, Université Catholique de Louvain Bruxelles and the Kunstakademie Münster  to collaborate on new innovative artworks and spatial solutions.

Using the concept of an international ‘biennale’, the curriculum will emulate a ‘real’ professional context. The students, working in small cross-disciplinary and transnational groups will be invited to respond to a specific site. This practice led approach will be embedded in a theoretical framework that enables a critical discussion and understanding of European art and architecture production and exhibition practice.

Here is the agenda of the two weeks and the Lablog presentation Beyond Memorialisation (140710).

The Next Monument, Amsterdam

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Are monuments only records of recorded histories? How can they act as a prompts for on-going reflection? Could a traditional monument be the starting point for individual commemoration? Does a memorial have to be fashioned out of bronze or marble to make a significant impression on our psyche? [James Young]

Material Contexts #3: Gian Maria Tosatti

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

Giovedì 19 Dicembre, Gian Maria Tosatti presenterà al Politecnico di Milano: Arte come dispositivo

Gian Maria Tosatti è un artista visivo romano. Si è formato al Centro per la Sperimentazione e la Ricerca Teatrale di Pontedera. Ha ricevuto, tra gli altri, il premio Terna 01 (2008), ArtSlant (2009-2010), Talent Prize (2011); è stato resident artist del Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York (2011) e della Fondazione Spinola-Banna, Asti (2013).

Dal 2005, le sue opere, generalmente grandi installazioni “ambientali” site specific, indagano le relazioni tra arte e architettura. Un lavoro paziente su tracce e memoria, capace di riscoprire, riattivare e riconnettere al presente luoghi abbandonati / dimenticati da tempo, grazie a poche, meditate azioni di trasformazione.
Tra i suoi lavori recenti ricordiamo “Spazio #6” e la “Tetralogia della polvere” a Casa Bossi, Novara (ciclo “Le considerazioni sugli intenti della mia prima comunione restano lettera morta”). Poche settimane fa, Tosatti ha inaugurato a Napoli una nuova installazione (“la Peste”) e un nuovo ciclo di progetti (Le sette stagioni dello spirito) che ambiscono a ridefinire il valore sociale dell’arte nella città contemporanea.

Form of Memories: Thinking about history in public places

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

[“Places of Remembrance” by Stih and Schnock, Berlin 1993]

lablog has been invited at the Newcastle Fine Art School [26NOV2013, at 16:00 in the seminar room at ground floor] for the lecture  “Form of Memories: Thinking about history in public places” as part of the REcall project initiatives.

The presentation deals with how monuments and memorials seem over time to have lost their effectiveness and have become empty simulacri of a remembrance and a memory they are no longer able to reactivate or keep alive. And this is where the investigation on traditional and new form of commemorative art works takes off.


Modernity, Interior Architecture and the Home

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

lablog is at KU Leuven for an intensive course on “interiors”: details about the initiative can be found at Athens courses while for details about the course download the programme.
