Architecture, Image, Action

October 12, 2012 at 1:00 pm

As buildings became part of the cultural identity of mass society, whether in the industrialized west or the colonized world, they created images along with usable public and private space. This presentation explores the role of images in architecture and visual culture. Testing the proposition that seemingly separate realms of image and action have been mutually constitutive, we will inquire into the dynamic between images and inhabitable objects.

Speakers: Andrew Herscher, University of Michigan; Michael Stöneberg, Photographic architectural historian, Frankfurt; Mary Woods, Cornell University; Claire Zimmerman, University of Michigan

Respondents:Brendan Fay, Keith Mitnick, Anca Trandafirescu, Etienne Turpin
