HafenCity Lectures

Relations — Particular Cases and Situated Practices

Mensa & Holcim
HafenCity Universität Überseeallee 16, Hamburg

The second edition of the HafenCity Lectures Relations takes place under the title Particular Cases and Situated Practices. International architects and artists are invited to have a public conversation about one of their projects, with one project partner, be that a client, curator, or collaborator. The aim is to explore, from various perspectives, a specific project (a particular case) and the process of its development in relation to its urban, sociopolitical, historical, and cultural site. How is knowledge and a practice produced on site, situated in between diverse actors and agents, complex practical and conceptual frameworks? 

At four events, our guests discuss their work and their positions within a particular case.

Relations — Particular Cases and Situated Practices is organized by Matthias Ballestrem, Christoph Heinemann, Mona Mahall, and Antje Stokman and is supported by the HafenCity Hamburg GmbH.
