Wohnungsfrage Academy / HKW and Columbia Buel Centre (Berlin, 2015)

In 2015, I participated in the Wohnungsfrage Academy, in Berlin. Bellow a resume of the Academy according to the offical website of the venue:

 

"Wohnungsfrage Academy gather knowledge and imagination that currently exists only in semi-isolation, and focus it—temporarily but strictly—on the task of making sense of the housing system. To do so, we will follow standard academic protocols: scheduled classes, social breaks, outings, and extracurricular events. But in each, we do not aim simply to confirm what is already known and taught in architecture schools and elsewhere about housing, but to identify—and to work on—what is not.

 

Tutors amongst others are: Daria Bocharnikova (Harvard University, Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies; Cambridge, MA), Kenny Cupers (University Basel), Catherine Fennell (Columbia University, Department of Anthropology; New York), Mariana Fix (Unicamp, Instituto de Economia, Centro de Estudos de Desenvolvimento Econômico - CEDE; Campinas, São Paulo, Brasil), Andrew Herscher (University of Michigan, Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning), Sandi Hilal (DAAR - Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency; Beit Sahour, Palestine), Li Hu (OPEN Architecture, Beijing), Anne Kockelkorn (ETH Zürich, Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture), David Madden (London School of Economics and Political Science – LSE, Department of Sociology), Mpho Matsipa (Wits University, Wits School of Architecture and Planning; Johannesburg / Columbia University, Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation; New York), Philipp Misselwitz (Technische Universität Berlin, Department of Architecture, Habitat Unit), Andrea Phillips (PARSE Professor of Art, Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg), Damon Rich (designer, urban planner, and artist; Newark, New Jersey), Susanne Schindler (Columbia University, Buell Center / ETH Zürich), AbdouMaliq Simone (Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity; Göttingen / Goldsmiths - University of London), Ashok Sukumaran (architect and media artist; Mumbai), and Jeronimo Voss (visual artist; Frankfurt am Main)."
