GSAPP CONVERSATIONS

Columbia GSAPP faculty members Andrés Jaque (Office for Political Innovation) and Bryony Roberts speak about the relationship between performance and architectural space, and Roberts' use of performance as a medium for critically engaging cultural history.

IKEA Disobedients
IKEA Disobedients, an architectural performance by Madrid-based Andrés Jaque Arquitectos, was recently acquired by MoMA. The international premiere of the performance at MoMA PS1, part of the 9+1 Ways of Being Political exhibition at MoMA, reveals how recent architectural practices utilize performative actions to engage audiences with architecture in a non-traditional way.
