analix forever heads for paris! the geneva-based art gallery presents the concrete islands exhibition there, opening on sat – apr 9 [2pm-8pm / drinks from 5pm]. curated by architecture expert elias redstone, this interesting group show explores contemporary experiences of utopian architectural projects through photography and film. for many architects modernism was a physical manifestation of human progress. interestingly, architectural historian colin rowe concluded that ‘the architect could stipulate an intrinsic connection between the form of his buildings and the condition of society’.

on display are a series of photographs and films that document, celebrate and critique architectural projects designed with inherent social and political values and that now exist in various stages of inhabitation, dereliction and even destruction. participating artists are mounir fatmiiwan baanniklas goldbachfrédéric chaubin and andreas angelidakis. location: 6 rue elzévir [marais].

  1. Merci déjà pour ce beau colloque.
    Une idée parmi d’autres our nous donner le goût de vous suivre, comme à de nouveaux curieux, étudiants et sur les deux ans à venir avant votre prochain colloque; il serait gai de pouvoir accéder sur ce blog, non seulement aux articles mais aussi à quelques photos d’oeuvres des artistes et architectes et surtout quelques enregistrements sous forme de fichiers audio, de quoi maintenir vives nos émotions…
    Merci encore
    BA
