The IMA is pleased to present a talk by Berlin-based architect, consultant and writer Markus Miessen on Thursday, 26 June, at 6pm.
Miessen is the initiator of the Participation tetralogy and his work revolves around questions of critical spatial practice, institution building, and spatial politics. His practice, Studio Miessen, is currently working on projects for and with EACC Castellon, Artsonje Seoul, Hamburger Kunstverein, Istanbul Biennale, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Bergen Assembly, Performa Biennial, Witte de With, Kosovo National Gallery, Weltkulturen Museum, and the artists Hito Steyerl and Denes Farkas. Their largest project to date is a strategic framework and new Kunsthalle building for a former NATO military site in Germany. In 2008, Miessen founded the Winter School Middle East (Kuwait). He was previously Professor for Critical Spatial Practice at the Städelschule, Frankfurt, and is now professor-in-practice at HEAD, Geneva, as well as at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
Missen’s talk will be introduced by Prof. Sandra Kaji-O’Grady from the University of Queensland’s School of Architecture.
This event is free for IMA members. Admission is $5 for non-members.
