THE RALLY 7/23

Series:
Date: Wednesday 7 July 1976
Time: 00:00
Venue:
Running time: 54 mins

The Rally: Celebrating the Art and Wit of Architecture: an event held at Art Net during the heatwave of July 1976. During the few years of its effervescent existence under Peter Cook's curatorship, Art Net was part art gallery, part architectural exhibition space, and part tribal gathering for various 'scenes'. Alongside the publication of the magazine Net, the space on West Central Street hosted a series of notable exhibitions, talks, and conferences. Peter Cook described Art Net as 'a kind of ad hoc institution where we hope that the people who are talking will knock up against one another' - a hope repeatedly fulfilled during the two weeks of The Rally. Yona Friedman concentrates on simple technology - technology that does not have to be taught; on the re-emergence of older methods of working, constructing, living; and on the communication problem between developed and developing countries, emphasizing that Western influence and ideas become risky and impractical when applied globally. He shows a prototype construction manual designed to be modified by users. NB: Picture occasionally jumps. Sound and visual distortion during last five minutes of lecture before cutting out abruptly.



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