NYC Travel Information Session

for Architecture Exchange 3

Assistant Professor Joseph Bedford and the School of Architecture + Design has organized a one-day symposium, How Does Architecture Distribute the Sensible?, in which four architectural theorists (Peggy Deamer, Anthony Vidler, Michael Young and Joan Ockman) will reflect together with Jacques Rancière* on the implications of his work for architecture.

Many students have been inquiring if there are any arrangements to go up to New York City for this one-day symposium. This is being considered and Professor Bedford is hosting an interest meeting on Tuesday November 5th from 2-3pm in Cowgill 404.

Event: NYC Travel interest meeting
Venue: Cowgill 404
Date: Tuesday, 5th November
Time: 2-3pm

The symposium will take place on Saturday, November 16th, 11:00 – 17:30 at The Cooper Union, in the new buildings at 41 Cooper Square. Everyone in the college is cordially invited to attend. The event is free and doors will open half an hour before.

*Jacques Rancière is one of the leading contemporary philosophers who has written about the modern situation of the arts. His 2004 The Politics of Aesthetics, took the art world by storm and his ideas have been percolating into the world of architecture for the last decade, with conferences and lectures at Yale University School of Architecture, the Royal Academy in London, and the French Society of Architects. In this event, Jacques Rancière will debate his philosophy of equality, aesthetics, dissensus and the question of how architecture “distributes the sensible.”
