Lecture by Andrés Jaque (architect)


"Everyday settings continue to be the sphere in which collective projects are described, desired, classified, and evaluated. There is no landscape that is not installed in a sitting room, no small table covered with a cloth that does not reach out into the surrounding area. Day-to-day life at home is an experiment connected by devices in the form of a television, recipes, songs, or Leroy Merlin catalogues to collective projects which even appear at times in the newspapers. Exploring what these connections are and how they can be mobilized from the perspective of democratic political representation is the purpose of this talk".
