About the lecture:
“Alles Ist Architektur,” said Hans, and his words+images echoed into the 21st Century. Here, highly hyperconnected duckfaces were busy painting pictures of themselves and their barely prefigured landscapes. While roaming their landscapes, the surface, both retired boomers and blossoming snowflakes picked up the signals, but, fully self-absorbed and migrained due to visual tinnitus, understood the message in twisted ways…
Pieterjan Ginckels invites you to My Little Hollein, in which we will explore the unwitting collateral damage of Hollein’s truisms. Together, aided by cool-critical devices designed for the occasion, we will explore if, where and how we can pierce the realized renderings that we design, produce and inhabit. Alles ist Architekt? Oder?

About the speaker:
Pieterjan Ginckels’ visual art practice concerns itself with the acceleration of modern life,deconstructing and repurposing the format, language, and aesthetics of post-internet, corporate and visual cultures. The projects are formatted as exhibitions and performative experiences that interweave spatial, artistic, and design practice. While shining a light on architecture’s disruptive context of acceleration and mediatization, Ginckels instigates collective experiments to develop post-millennial modes of operation, to explore new cultures of collective reflection and to nurture ‘Cool-Critical’ practice. Ginckels is founder of the journal MISANTHROPOZINE and recently co-established the research collective Post-Office. He teaches the Architects Without Qualities design studio and Car Tuning for Architects seminar.
