Exquisite Zone by Carmin Karasic & Rolf van Gelder @ GLOW 2011 Festival :: November 5 – 12, 2011 :: Kennedyplein, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

The Rise of Performance Architecture: Camp-Conference on Art/Urban Strategies :: September 22 – October 1, 2011 :: Grisar Park, Brussels, Todays Art Festival.

Accepting architecture as cultural production, its performative dimension must also contribute to a critical role, that is, to architecture’s capacity to produce commentary regarding the ongoing transformations of culture and society.
