Situerad praktik, metod och påverkan

Välkommen till ett samtal om hållbara deltagandemodeller för alternativa visioner, utbildning och organisering.

Asli Kiyak, Merve Gül Özokcu och Isshaq Albarbary arbetar undersökande genom att placera sig och sina praktiker i nära dialog med platser, människor och sammanhang där förutsättningar för påverkan är begränsad. Genom att agera organiserande och aktiverande skapar de utrymme och synlighet för att påverka och ge röst åt alternativa visioner och opinioner.

Med fokus på metod får vi genom presentationerna och efterföljande samtal insyn i hur dessa arkitekter/konstnärer skapar förutsättningar för dialog och hållbara deltagandemodeller. Vi får ta del av tre kortare presentationer följt av ett samtal modererat av Magnus Ericsson (IASPIS). Asli Kiyak och Merve Gül Özokcu medverkar via länk.

Programpunkten genomförs i samarbete med IASPIS. Alla medverkande är knutna till IASPIS residensprogram.

Samtalet är en del av Röhsskas arkitekturdagar 2022.

Welcome to a talk on practice and methods for alternative visions, education and assembly.

Asli Kiyak, Merve Gül Özokcu and Isshaq Albarbary’s practices are situated, critical and participatory and through their work they organize opportunities for engagement in the production of alternative visions for the places and people they work with.

With a focus on methods we will through the talk get insight into how these architects and artists enable dialogue, assembly and sustainable participation. The presentations will be followed by a conversation moderated by Magnus Ericsson (IASPIS).

The program is made possible through a collaboration with IASPIS. All participants are recently or present IASPIS residents.

Aslı Kıyak İngin is an architect, designer, activist and educator based in Istanbul. She is running a critical design practice. She works in various fields such as design, craft, architecture, urbanism and art, with projects concerned with social, cultural and economic issues related to the city, against to the top down urban transformation and gentrification developments, and by advocating sustainable and participatory models for alternative visions.

She has since 2006 initiated and developed the project and concept Made in Şişhane which aims for safeguarding the craft neighbourhoods in Istanbul. Against the vision and practices of displacing local production and craft in the city center, the project carries out a series of actions and sub-projects in order to keep local production and craft in place and strengthen it.

Merve Gül Özokcu is a Turkey-based architect and researcher, currently doing her PhD at Istanbul Technical University. She is a part of the collectives of Herkes İçin Mimarlık (Architecture for All) and Arazi Assembly. Her individual research, Women Narrative Spaces brings together her experience of those from participatory fieldwork and the oral history research that uses cooking together as a tool starting with her grandmother.

This research is an attempt to travel with women through their geographies while daily routines reveal spaces of caring and encounter the inherent collective aspects of food. Oral history becomes a tool through which eco-feminist perspektives reveal the social reproduction of architecture. The Research path is starting from eating-cooking habits and their relationship with the place. How do the memories of cuisines interact/adapt with geography? What is shared? What is the relationship between memory, daily routines of food and space? How is it transferred to the present ? Can these conversations be a guide to strengthen commons (sharing and solidarity practices). This ongoing research sees disscusing how to document routines inherent in stories and the adaptation of the changes by place and time are seen as a decolonization practice.

Isshaq Albarbary is an artist and researcher born in Beit Jibrin refugee camp, Palestine and currently working between Amsterdam and Bethlehem. His work engages the relation between art, statelessness, and extraterritoriality. His research-based practice deals with authenticity, imitations, camouflage, anonymity, normalization, and naturalization.

He was a 2017/2018 fellow at BAK (basis voor actuele kunst), and previously a participant and coordinator of Campus in Camps, an educational program that activated collaborative critical learning environments in Palestinian refugee camps. He is a founding member of Al Maeishah, a communal learning environment where participants explore and practice neighbouring and hospitality as radical political acts.

Magnus Ericson is Head of IASPIS Applied Arts Programme in Stockholm, Sweden. He has a background as curator and educator working across design, architecture, urbanism and art with a focus on socially engaged critical practice, pedagogy and curating. At IASPIS Magnus Ericson is responsible for the design, crafts and architecture related activities including residency programmes, developing strategic projects for international exchange and public discursive projects such as ‘Urgent Pedagogies’ and ‘Vulnerability by Design’.
