Event Details

Radical Talks are back – Again!

We would like to invite you to join us THIS THURSDAY (30.03.23) for the next Radical Talk hosted by Aarhus School of Architecture in the Didakteket.

This week our guests are Jeanne Astrup-Chauvaux and Sarah Bovelett from Floating University!

Floating University is “not floating” and “not a university” (Gilly Karjevsky), this site is difficult to describe but, in an attempt to do so, it is a place of active curiosity where knowledge exchanges emerge through interactions of collective building, workshops, events, installations and interventions. It is situated in Berlin, in a rainwater retention basin that previously served Tempelhof Airport and has become a third landscape, where negotiations between water, plants, animals, humans, algae, pollutions are in constant discussion. Floating University is run by Floating e.V, an association whose mission is to “to open, maintain, and take care of this unique site while bringing non-disciplinary, radical, and collaborative programs to the public.”

Please join us in the Didakteket for a talk from our guests followed by an informal and open discussion!

About the lecture series

This year, Radical Talks operates under the title “SLOW – FLOATING – SOFT – FAILED” and will revolve around alternative practices that deviate from and challenge more traditional operations and bring important critical perspectives to the field of architecture and the built environment.

The Talks will be of an informal and non-hierarchical nature. They consist of a short lecture/presentation of works by our guest speakers, followed by a debating session between lecturer(s), tutors, and audience. The aim is to challenge rituals of knowledge exchange by transforming them into an inclusive and multifocal experience in which attendees become contributors.

Radical Talks presents a variety of guests from different backgrounds and with different approaches to architecture. Their work engages with everything from trans-disciplinarity, collaboration, criticism to care, experimentation, sensitivity and much more.

We look forward to seeing you there!
