The annual festival OPEN continues the critical and investigative approach to Architecture, encouraging the important dialogue between Practice, Business and Academia. This year under the theme Solidarity.
The festival is dedicated to the emerging and radical voices within the architectural field. The programme features thematic panel talks, interviews, lectures, performances, exhibitions, and artistic interventions, all of this taking place in the unique setting at Aarhus School of Architecture with DJ, street food and relaxed atmosphere.
OPEN23 looks into Solidarity as a fundamental and indispensable cohesion within architecture and within society as a whole. Does solidarity have the potential to lead the way through the ecological crisis, and can solidarity be a future driver for sustainable solutions? OPEN23 will discuss how architecture from a radically alternative perspective can contribute to solutions where solidarity overrules economic interests.
