Dissident Publics: NOGOODS Studio
NOGOODS Studio, Bergen
Exutoire & NOGOODS
7. - 11. november 2022
“Dissident Publics: Future Artefacts of Queer Methodologies” is a collaborative artistic research project, launched at ROM for kunst og arkitektur in August 2022, that will culminate in a collective exhibition and public programme in May–June 2023.
The NOGOODS Studio period will be open to the public on two occasions:
OPENING EVENING LECTURE
in collaboration with the Bergen School of Architecture (BAS)
Wednesday 9 November 2022, starting at 18:30 (Bar opens at 18:00)
at the BAS Auditorium, Sandviksboder 59–61a, 5035 Bergen
“On Performative Spatialities” with Nagy Makhlouf
Dissident Publics x NOGOODS
Friday 11 November 2022, starting at 16:00
at NOGOODS studio+project space, Kong Oscars gate 45, 5017 Bergen
Time for the project group to share and discuss the productions from the different workshops (or “prototyping sessions”) throughout the week with the larger public.
This co-creation process delves into queer and intersectional feminist theory, methodologies and perspectives to uncover new imaginaries of public space and the built environment. The project is initiated and coordinated by ROM’s curators in residence Exutoire (Bui Quy Son and Paul-Antoine Lucas), co-curated with NOGOODS (Danja Burchard and Maike Statz), and developed together with five artists and architects: Léa Brami, Mahé Cordier-Jouanne, Lexie Owen, Liene Pavlovska, and Jan Trinh.
Collaborators of the project (second phase):
Nagy Makhlouf is an architect and a doctoral student at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), where he collaborates with the ALICE and RIOT laboratories. He researches drawing the political economy of space production, focusing on housing in North America, and he participated in the collective teaching of "DRAG(UE): Performativity and the built environment."
Dissident Publics is supported by the Arts Council Norway (Kulturrådet), Globus Opstart - Nordisk Kulturfond, L’Institut français de Norvège, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Paris, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Riga.
