Storefront for Art and Architecture

poster for "Manifesto 02 - Infrastructural Opportunism" Event

This event has ended.

About the Manifesto Series: The Manifesto Series is part of Storefront's programming for the development and exposure of fresh and new ideas in a short, precise and concise manner. The events have the aim to reinvigorate and reinvent the manifesto format as a way of exchanging ideas between architectural discourses and social and political spaces of action.
While contemporary politics is navigating towards a better understanding of the geopolitical consequences of an increasingly globalized territory through a publicly acknowledged Infrastructural Investment, architects, simultaneously, have shifted their attention from the object to the territory. Coupling: Infrastructural Opportunism , the last issue of Pamphlet Architecture, is a collection of projects, strategies and methodologies that show us how to learn to see our build environment anew and find new opportunities for action. This event will bring together a series of this issue's contributors and other architects and writers to deliver a series of fresh thoughts towards an Infrastructural Opportunism.
The event will feature:
MIMI ZEIGER on manifestos
INTERBORO on exclusion
DIANA BALMORI on realignments
JASON VIGNERI-BEANE on stripping down
ANDREW BLUM on tubes
JOYCE HWANG on interventions
MAMMOTH on expanding fields
JANETTE KIM on highjacking
INFRANET LAB on contingency
