Public programme on architecture in relation to ideologies and public space.

À propos de cet événement

In Between Utopia and Failure aims to resituate the issues present in the exhibition Omnia Communia Deserta within the local context of Brussels. Throughout a series of events the programme will address the Belgian capital’s socio-political situation, ranging from its relationship to the past and its intensive post-war urban development, to its inherently political and international character.

In both cases of Bucharest and Brussels, the prevailing powers in the 1960s-1970s and their ideologies made a lasting imprint on the urban landscapes, driven by a similar desire for modernity to erase past developments. What do we inherit from the ruins of these utopias? How can we apprehend the chasm between the grandiloquence of their origins and their fall? How are we to behave within these spaces today? What progress is still possible? Over the course of four chapters, the programme will endeavor to rethink and discuss the concept of modernity in a decompartmentalized and global manner, using artistic, philosophical, and socio-political proposals as a framework.
