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]
