CITY CRITICAL – CONVERSATION 4: Exhibitionism: Unveiling Architectural History

Colloquium Poster 4

Speaker: Claire Zimmerman

IntroductionBefore architecture is a building it is a genealogy of thoughts, images, and experiences. The history of architecture is rescued from minds and archives by its translation into books, which unfortunately cater mostly to specialists. It is the exhibition, however, that engages the public more fluently. The sensorial spectrum of the exhibition resembles the architectural experience more closely than any other form of knowledge dissemination. This symposium explores the exhibition as the scholar’s form of practice. In what ways, for example, do exhibitions facilitate public engagement with history? And, what role does the public play in the knowledge industry?.
