Do comrades Gossip?

Gossips

Thu 07 Nov 2019, 19:30 — 21:30

Comrade is a term of address, carrier of expectations, and figure of political belonging. Promising new relations of equality and solidarity, it provides liberation from the conventions of oppressive bourgeois society, liberation from expectations linked to sex and race. Comradeship is a relation of sameness, the sameness that comes from being on the same side. Anyone but not everyone can be a comrade. This lecture by professor of political science Jodi Dean will focus on the energy and enthusiasm of women comrades.

Evolutionaries

Guest Programme

Thu 07 Nov 2019, 19:30 — 21:30

The city of the future is in constant transformation and seeks creative solutions to tailor-made housing and mixed-use environments. During 'Evolutionaries' we use the radical ideas of Yona Friedman’s Spatial City as a blueprint for the challenges that today’s architects and urbanists are faced with. How can we create a contemporary urban environment that allows architecture to evolve beyond rigid structures? How do cities cope with flexibility in structures worldwide, such as China and South Africa? How can cities become more ‘elastic’ and adaptive, and why is this necessary?
