collage | method | process Seminar: In the Studio Constructing an Archive, which is part of the master’s degree programme at the Aarhus School of Architecture, we focus on the study of architectural representation and how a critical approach to architectural representation can inform the making and thinking of architecture. During the present term it will, in particular, be the architectural collage and its media characteristics that we will be discussing. We will specifically investigate the collage as a medium for architectural analysis, contemplation and design. At the same time, we will continue our long-standing investigation of archives and collections. During the present term, our study is of the exhibition as cultural construct, historiography, medium, architectural representation and a particular context for architectural collages, models, drawings, photos, archival material and collections, etc. The aim of the Collage| Method | Process seminar is to enter into a dialogue with three artists and researchers of art and architecture who work critically with representations. • Elsebeth Jørgensen, Visual Artist, DK • Merete Ahnfeldt-Mollerup, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, DK • Lise Skytte Jakobsen, Department of Aesthetics and Communication, Aarhus University, DK Media and representations are not unbiased: they filter our gaze and create a frame for our perception. How do representations affect our understanding of architecture? How can we develop architecture based on a conscious use of representations? What might the potentials of developing new forms of representation be? What architectural experience will result from applying different representations, and what type of generative design process can we initiate by using these in a specific way? What is - and what will be - the future role of the architect in a media-based society and what new visual cultures and situations of communication centred around architecture will arise in the future? These are just a few of the questions which form the starting point of the seminar: Collage | Method | Process. The seminar is open to the public. It is, however, primarily aimed at students from Studio Constructing an Archive, as well as teachers and researchers with a particular interest in the relation between art, architecture and representations. The seminar language is English. The seminar is organized by Teaching Associate Professor Professor Claudia Carbone and Associate Professor Anne Elisabeth Toft, Studio Masters, Constructing an Archive.
