CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
for the Symposium 'Perception in Architecture. HERE and NOW' at ANCB from 27 June to 28 June
DEADLINE 28 March 2014
As an interdisciplinary cultural platform, ANCB does not focus solely on any single knowledge field or topic. Instead it aims to bring together a range of different viewpoints and areas of expertise in order to stimulate a multi-faceted dialogue with an international outlook. The symposium Perception in Architecture. HERE and NOW in collaboration with the University of Sydney is part of the ANCB programme ‘No Space Without Traits’, and invites critical contributions by academics, artists, architects, designers and curators to reflect upon new spatial concepts and thus access ‘new spaces’ of definitions and perspectives, strategies and processes of perception in architecture.
The definitions of space are as diverse as the disciplines in which it plays a fundamental role - from science to philosophy, art and architecture - and within each field the assessments of space are often simplified or reduced. With such an approach, we refuse ourselves access to ‘new spaces’, whose definitions and perspectives, strategies and processes of perception from all fields of human activity are too rarely considered in a cohesive manner. This is where the ANCB programme ‘No Space Without Traits’ comes in: particularly through artistic approaches, it aims to open doors into spatial worlds that until now have remained closed. This programme enables investigations from different methodologies, practices and objectives from art and science, based on creative, behavioural and cultural science positions and processes.
With the symposium we aim to generate a stimulated discourse focused on but not limited to the following themes:
