Precarious Pavilions


More info soon.

         The 21st century is, and increasingly will be, characterized by far-reaching crises: Besides climate change there will be continuing financial and cultural crises. How do we think about architecture — the creation of space — within an unstable world? How can the notion of precarity offer a lens through which to rethink our way of living, not only in a negative sense but also in a positive one?

Over the course of 2018—2019 four pavilions, in four different seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn), in four different (Belgian) cities, will be conceived by four different artist(collectives). The whole project is curated by Michiel Vandevelde.
