Reading Group: Feminist Theories and Practices
Guests: Phoebe Giannisi and Marios Chatziprokopiou
Chimera, Local Tropics, The Place of Scraps: Polyphonic readings for the species, gender, race and sexuality.
Thursday 12 March 2020, Time: 15.00-18.30
Department of Architecture, 1st Floor, Patari Metaptichiakou
The seminar embarks on the key question by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, "Can the subaltern speak?" (1988) to focus on the practices of ethnography, poetry, and performativity, further raising issues of postcolonial, feminist and queer theories. The participants in the seminar read live selected texts from the books Chimera (Χίμαιρα) and Local Tropics (Τοπικοί Τροπικοί) by Phoebe Giannisi and Marios Hadjiprokopiou, respectively. These readings, and their live, performative versions, are then put in a dialogue with the work of the indigenous, Canadian, poet Jordan Abel, 'The Place of Scraps'. The connecting thread: the shifting of dominant ethnographic discourse on gender, race, and sexuality and how these (re)inscribe in the field of literature - written and/or vocalized.
The arguments of the three poet(es)s' are inscribed in a genealogy of relations between ethnography and art with a particular emphasis on language (from the work of Michel Leiris to that of Michael Taussig) and discussed in conversation with the critical essays on ethics and politics of performativity and ethnography by David Conquergood.
Exhibition of student works from the course Architectural Design V-VII Η: Digital Tectonics: From design to construction
Exhibition Space of the Department of Architecture, University of Thessaly, Volos
Opening:Tuesday 11 February 2020 | 17.00
The exhibition presents the results of the course Architectural Design V-VII Η: Digital Tectonics: From design to construction that took place during the winter semester of the academic year 2019-2020. The course focuses on the possibilities of digital design and construction tools for the creation of a small-scale architecture, such as pavilions, canopies and other ephemeral structures, which aim to expand the design and construction capabilities to a more imaginative and experimental approach. The exhibition presents different approaches towards the design of an architectural pavilion, with a specific scenario, space and design intent, which will function either as a permanent or ephemeral structure in the context of a cultural or artistic event.
In particular, the design was investigated in conjunction with the construction, since the two processes are interconnected and there is constant feedback from one to another, creating a continuous process between design and construction. Thus, the connectivity and assembly options are elements that inform the design process.
