Unzipped Embodiments: The Territorialization of HIV/AIDS

A lecture by Ivan L. Munuera, New York-based scholar, critic, and curator working at the intersection of culture, technology, politics, and bodily practices in the modern period and on the global stage.

Visiting Professor at Bard College and Barnard-Columbia, his research has been generously sponsored by PIIRS (Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies) and CCA (Canadian Centre for Architecture). In 2020, he was awarded the Harold W. Dodds Fellowship at Princeton University. This fellowship recognizes scholars displaying the highest academic excellence and professional promise.

He has presented his work at various academic forums, such as the Association for Art History, European Architectural History Network, Cornell AAP, Columbia GSAPP, Princeton University, Cooper Union, Penn University, Sussex University, the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Manchester University, Willem de Kooning Academy, UTS Sydney, University of Texas, University of Virginia, MICA, and ETSAM, among others. His work has been published in Log, Perspecta, Thresholds, The Architect’s Newspaper, ARCH+, e-flux, and El País, among others.

He has curated exhibitions at Maat Lisbon (Vulnerable Beings, 2021), Museo Reina Sofía (The Schizos, 2009), Ludwig Museum (ACAX Residency, 2010), and CA2M (Pop Politics, 2012-2013); and developed a series of projects, including Your Restroom is a Battleground /The Restroom Pavilion (Venice Architecture Biennale, 2021), Unzipped Parties (Russian Federation Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, 2021), Transfusing (Shanghai Biennale, 2021), The Transscalar Architecture of COVID-19 (The World Around, 2020), Bauhauswelle (Floating University Berlin, 2018) and Chromanoids (Istanbul Design Biennale, 2016; Seoul Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism, 2017).
