AA Dialogues: Charlie Koolhaas

The culture of hybrid

Series: Dialogues
Date: Tuesday 6 February 2018
Time: 18:30
Venue: 33 First Floor Front

Having extensively documented and interpreted architecture and cities around the world, Dutch artist, writer and educator Charlie Koolhaas is a commentator on the evolving nature of urban life. In a dialogue with Marko Milovanovic, Charlie will recall images and thoughts about physical and invisible signs of collective and individual transformations and the impact of technology, mass media and politics on the contemporary culture and society.


Charlie Koolhaas grew up in London and currently operates a studio out of Rotterdam. Her recently exhibited sculptural photography explores corners and streets of Guangzhou, Dubai and Rotterdam. She studied at the New York University and the Goldsmiths and she lived in Guangzhou, China where she founded the international journal UNIT magazine. In 2007 Charlie co-curated the Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture. Her photography has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale and Vitra Design Museum. Her solo show True Cities was on show at the AA in 2011.




Curated by Marko Milovanovic, AA Dialogues is about AA Members and alumni taking an active part in conversations. Come with questions, ideas and thoughts to explore how other 'makers' operate on the edges or outside of the architectural field to inform or challenge how we identify ourselves, work and think. Are we in fact becoming more and more collaborative and how do we handle a contemporary obsession to define who we are instead of what we do?
