Place and Displacement: Exhibiting Architecture

Apr 25, 2013 - Apr 27, 2013
The National Museum, Oslo


Within the framework of the OCCAS research project Place and Displacement: Exhibiting Architecture, we have invited scholars from the new research field of architectural exhibitions to discuss on‐going work that explores the exhibition as an architectural medium par excellence. The three sessions – Display, Canon and Time – overlap and intersect thematically. The symposium will provide a tentative framework for the forthcoming anthology Place and Displacement: Exhibiting Architecture, to be published by Lars Müller Publishers, Zürich, and launched at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, June 2014.
