Where is Everyday Life? 1/10

Series: Friday Lecture Series
Date: Friday 12 October 2012
Time: 17:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 60 mins

This year’s Friday lectures will deal with the architectural and artistic use of the category ‘everyday life’.  It appears to be a realm which is immune to interpretation, it is just there.  The course seeks to show it has a strong relation to the issue of the Cliché, the topic of last year’s lectures.  The course demonstrates that the phrase is imbedded with philosophical presuppositions.  Sometimes it means the given, the appearance, sometimes the concrete. It frequently involves the use of what the course will represent as the Imaginary.  It proceeds by looking at aspects of architecture and design from both the point of view of the Cliché and the imaginary.

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
