Buildings on fire: Towards a new approach to urban memory
Slade Research Centre |
London | WC1H 0HB | United Kingdom
Stamatis Zografos, Curator, is a London-based architect and has a PhD in Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths, University of London. His research is interdisciplinary and focuses on architecture, memory and fire. He is also the founder of Incandescent Square, a collaborative meeting point for research and design.
Elena Papadaki, Curator, is a Paris-based art historian and cultural theorist. Her doctoral research (Goldsmiths, University of London) has examined the curation of screen-based works in multiple environments. She is an active member of Incandescent Square.
This event and installation in the Slade Research Centre will examine different ways that fire can act as a methodology to access and explore memory in architecture.
Considering that fire is an imminent threat to architectural memory, what is its impact on building heritage? Can this element be understood as a methodology to reconceptualise heritage and sustainability? Given that fire is commonly used as a tool to (re)claim civil rights, can it also be perceived as a methodology to rethink citizenship?
The exhibition is part of UCL Urban Laboratory's Cities Methodologies programme.
