Oslo Architecture Triennale 
2 October, 2019, 16:00 – 18:00
ROM for kunst og arkitektur, Maridalsveien 3, Oslo
Organiser ROM and Oslo National Academy of the Arts

With the general neoliberalization of life all work and no play has shifted to all play is work. Given the Oslo Triennale’s radical suggestion of linking new forms of play to the concept of degrowth, it is of interest to reflect on how taking back play can, our could, be a viable form of resistance against the biopolitical paradigm of neoliberal capitalism and its exhausting 24/7 ideology.

Historically, the playground developed as a pedagogical site not merely dedicated to children’s play, but much rather teaching children the right way of playing. This lecture focuses on uses of the playground in both literal and figurative terms. Who’s taking the children to the playground while parents are at work? Which parts of the world are considered their playground by those who are in power? How can we start envisioning or dreaming new forms of play given the historically gendered and racialized ideas of the playground?

Today, architecture and urbanism are capital-centric, speculation-driven, and investment-dominated. Many cannot afford housing. Austerity measures have taken a disastrous toll on public infrastructures. The climate crisis has rendered the planet vulnerable, even uninhabitable. This book offers an alternative vision in architecture and urbanism that focuses on caring for a broken planet. Rooted in a radical care perspective that always starts from the given, in the midst of things, this edited collection of essays and illustrated case studies documents ideas and practices from an extraordinarily diverse group of contributors.

Focusing on the three crisis areas of economy, ecology, and labor, the book describes projects including village reconstruction in China; irrigation in Spain; community land trust in Puerto Rico; revitalization of modernist public housing in France; new alliances in informal settlements in Nairobi; and the redevelopment of traditional building methods in flood areas in Pakistan. Essays consider such topics as ethical architecture, land policy, creative ecologies, diverse economies, caring communities, and the exploitation of labor. Taken together, these case studies and essays provide evidence that architecture and urbanism have the capacity to make the planet livable, again.

Vorträge „Reproduktionsort und Ware: Die Wohnung als Kristallisationspunkt gesellschaftlicher Widersprüche“ von Eva Kuschinski und „Grundrisse der Reproduktion. Die Haushaltsfrage“ von Elke Krasny (PhD) mit anschließendem Gespräch.

Die Wohnung wie wir sie heute kennen, ist ein Ort, an dem gesellschaftliche Widersprüche sichtbar werden und sich auch räumlich manifestieren. Sie hat sich (idealtypisch) als der Ort herausgebildet, an dem Menschen sich erholen, zurückziehen, Hausarbeit machen, geschützt sind, essen, schlafen, ihren Alltag verbringen. Zugleich ist sie aber als Ware in Kapitalkreisläufe eingebunden. Im Vortrag geht es darum, aus feministisch-materialistischer Perspektive die Einbettung der Wohnung in diese widersprüchlichen gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse zu diskutieren und so auch aktuelle politische Verhandlungen der Wohnungsfrage – und warum sie sich wie für wen stellt – kritisch in den Blick zu nehmen.

Wer sammelt den Müll auf am Montag in der Früh nach der Revolution, fragte die feministische Künstlerin Mierle Laderman Ukeles im Jahr 1969. Wir müssen fragen: Wer entsorgt den Müll nach acht Stunden in der Fabrik? Wer ist im Atelier, während gekocht wird? Aus der Perspektive des feministischen Marxismus auf reproduktive Arbeit werden Wohnungsgrundrisse von Bauhausbauten in Dessau und Gemeindebauten des Roten Wien untersucht. Der Vortrag verfolgt Grundrisse der Reproduktion und verbindet die Haushaltsfrage mit der Geschichte der Architekturmoderne und des Feminismus.

Eva Kuschinski lebt in Hamburg und arbeitet dort seit 2015 als wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin an der HafenCity Universität. Zuvor hat sie unter anderem in Frankfurt am Main Humangeographie und Soziologie studiert. Im Rahmen ihres Dissertationsprojekts denkt sie über materialistisch-feministische Perspektiven auf die Wohnungsfrage nach. Auch darüber hinaus ist sie interessiert an solchen Zugängen zu Stadt und Gesellschaft und deren Vermittlung. 2018 arbeitete sie beispielsweise mit dem feministischen Theaterkollektiv Swoosh Lieu an deren Stück „WhoReclaims?! – ein collagierter Streifzug durch die Raumfrage“, das utopische Momente und Praktiken feministischer Raumnahme portraitierte.

Elke Krasny, PhD, ist Professorin an der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien. Sie forscht und kuratiert zu Fragen von Feminismen, Arbeit, Ökonomie, Ökologie und Erinnerungspolitiken in Architektur, Urbanismus, zeitgenössischer Kunst und Kunstvermittlung. Jüngste Vorträge: ‘Gathering Feminist Resisters. Assemblies, Dinners, Salons, and Tribunals’, Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo; Wandering Wombs and Arching Bodies. The Hysterical Complex in Feminist Political Thought’, University of California Los Angeles und ’Kuratieren im Salon. Intime Öffentlichkeiten‘ Schwules Museum Berlin. 2019 hat sie gemeinsam mit Angelika Fitz das Buch Critical Care. Architecture and Urbanism for a Broken Planet (MIT Press) herausgegeben.

Die Veranstaltung findet statt im Rahmen der Reihe „Feministische Wohngeschichte(n) für die Zukunft. Berlin, Bauhaus und darüber hinaus“ (6.9.-18.10.2019).

Erinnerung, Trauma, Widerstand, Veränderung
Gegenwärtigkeit, trans­nationale Verflechtungen und Geschichtspolitiken in der Kunstvermittlung

Vortrag, 19. September 2019
Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien
IKL Karl-Schweighofer Gasse 3, 1070 Wien
11.00, Raum 3.06

Die Vergangenheit ist das Problem der Gegenwart. Erinnerung ist das um­kämpfte Terrain von Ideologien und Interessen. Kunst artikuliert Verhält­nisse zur Vergangenheit. Kunst mobilisiert Erinnerung. Kunstvermittlung ist nicht nur Teil der kritischen Aufarbeitung und Reflexion dieser Verhältnisse, sondern auch handelnde Akteur_in in der Veränder­barkeit und Veränderung dieser Verhältnisse. Erinnerungs-Aktivismus bringt Denk- mäler zu Fall, führt zur Errichtung neuer Museen, klagt Reparation ein, fordert Repatriation. Transnationale Verflechtungen im Erinnerungs-Aktivismus und seinen Geschichts­­politiken erörtert der Vortrag an Hand von aktuellen Entwicklungen in Berlin, Cape Town, Seoul und Wien. Die Wunden, Traumata, und Konflikte der Vergangenheit sind die Wunden, Traumata, und Konflikte der Gegenwart. Der Vortrag reflektiert deren Gegenwärtigkeit und Vergegenwärtigung in kunstvermittelnder Erinnerungsarbeit und Trauerarbeit als Aufgabe und Herausforderung für kunstbasierte, forschungsgeleitete und gesellschaftlich involvierte Praxis in der Lehre und im Kuratieren.

Brigitte Shim & Elke Krasny present
“Building Our Collective Memory – The House / Museum”

Thursday, February 14, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

The modern house has been the site for great experiments and invaluable exploration in new ways of living. The House / Museums exist in different forms around the world. Liljestrand House has transformed from a single family house to a new House / Museum. It is amongst a growing number of global house museums that provide visitors with a deeper understanding of the radical types of spatial innovations that have been explored through the house in the modernist period.

We hope you will join us for Brigitte & Elke’s “Building Our Collective Memory – The House / Museum” presentation and conversation. Together, they will present a range of significant House / Museums around the world providing a context to the important work being done at Liljestrand House. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with them throughout this informal discussion and cocktail event at the inspired setting of the Liljestrand House.

Symposium, November 30–December 02, 2018
Belvedere 21, Arsenalstraße 1, 1030 Vienna, Austria

Since 2017 women are marching again. Their activism is taking them to the streets, to speaking out, to giving testimony, to blogging, to connecting transnationally via social media. The f-word stirs heated discussions in mainstream media. #MeToo has spurred action on sexual violence. We may well be witnessing the emergence of a new feminist movement. This is owed to rising misogyny, queerphobia, transphobia, racism, xenophobia, exploitative labour conditions, a crisis in reproduction, and a new order of gender politics linked to the rise of the global right. Time to reconsider feminisms in plural and their histories, including those of art making and curating, as they relate to past revolutions, in particular the 1968 year of revolt and protests. Movements in Feminism / Feminisms in Movement: Urgencies, Emergencies, Promises connects current developments in feminist art practice, curating, and cultural production to larger societal and political trends just as much as to translocal, transhistorical, and global matters of feminist concern. Key are feminist politics as they are committed to antiracist, anti-capitalist, and decolonizing struggles. Movements in Feminism / Feminisms in Movement: Urgencies, Emergencies, Promises takes place in the framework of Joint Ventures. A public program on the relevance of 1968 in the present day at Belvedere 21 and includes two screening programs and a two-day event of lectures, workshops, conversations, collective writing, and networking activities. 
 
Curated by Elke Krasny, Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Luisa Ziaja, Curator for Contemporary Art at Belvedere, Vienna; together with Lara Perry, School of Humanities, University of Brighton and Dorothee Richter, Director of PhD in Practice in Curating at the ZHdK / University of Reading and Head of MAS in Curating at Zurich University of the Arts www.curating.org.

Part of the public program on the relevance of 1968 in the present day organized by Belvedere 21

1968 brings to mind social change, insurrection, and liberation, an eventful period of worldwide protests, dismantling authoritarian structures, and creating alternative social models. The public program Joint Ventures, takes place over seven weekends between May and December and will examine how things stand today with regard to the socio-political achievements and demands of the movements of 1968.
