Ongoing Investigations

Diploma 3: The Architectural Media Complex

AA Gallery 26/2/2019 - 8/3/2019

Private View Tuesday, 26 February at 8.30pm
Monday to Friday 10:00-19:00, Saturday 10:00-17:00

To coincide with the last Evidentiary Aesthetics Open Seminar and their mid-term jury, Diploma 3 takes over the AA gallery and invites guests to examine cases of conflict through an architectural lens. The unit looks at conflict as the tension between complex spatial forces, between actors and their environments; and interrogates the political after life of technologies that capture, process and transform space into media. The investigations span across scales and locations. 
When an official investigation is ‘ongoing’ it usually means that the details of the case cannot be disclosed. This exhibition takes the opposite approach and opens up case files mid-process. It invites guests to look through the evidence, in order to discuss practices of investigating and ways in which architectural research can be activated in existing forums.
