International Symposium: On Power in Architecture #3


The third and last edition of the symposia series On Power in Architecture will bring together renowned philosophers and theoreticians, who will think about the specific intertwinement between power and architecture in contemporary neoliberalism from the psychoanalytical and poststructuralist perspective.

26 September 2019, MAO – Museum of Architecture and Design, Ljubljana
Speakers: Andrew Ballantyne, Elke Krasny, Nadir Lahiji, Robert Pfaller, Douglas Spencer

The speakers will talk about micropolitics and architecture, phantasmagoria and capitalist pleasure, iconic shifts in architecture in the 1980s and ’90s, the intertwinement of postmodernist aesthetics and neoliberalism, and the possibilities of an alternative view of power in architecture as the power of capital and the power for capital.

The symposium will be in English. Entry is free of charge.
