Curating and Counter Curating

Sep 22, 2011 - Sep 23, 2011
Arkitekturmuseet, Stockholm

How does experimental curating in design and architecture emerge and develop? Which contexts and what conditions make this possible? How do exhibitions and institutional projects inflect our understanding of design and architecture? In what ways do they contribute to debate and how do they influence design direction? Spring 2011 Arkitekturmuseet presented Environments Counter Environments: Italy the New Domestic Landscape, MoMA 1972. Subsequent to this exhibition the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm hosts a public two-day symposium on experimental curatorial and institutional practice. OCCAS was represented by professor Thordis Arrhenius.

Participants: Carlo Caldini, 9999 (IT); Pietro Derossi, Gruppo Strum (IT) and Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, Superstudio (IT)
