Open Week Talks: PARSE DIALOGUE - On Migration & Heritage, Institutions & Social Justice

Lecture

The PARSE-dialogue On Migration & Heritage, Institutions & Social Justice will address how the relation between life as such and social, cultural, political and economic barriers as produced by educational and heritage institutions, can be challenged. From the outside and from within by radical and inclusive forms of institutional practice.

With:
Alessandro Petti (Professor in Architecture and Social Justice, Royal Institute of Art - Kungl. Konsthögskolan (KKH) & Decolonising Architecture Art Residency)
Gabi Dolff-Bonekämper (The Technical University of Berlin & Landesdenkmalamt)

Hosted in the café at HDK, the dialogue On Migration & Heritage, Institutions & Social Justice co-arranged by the Centre on Global Migration and Centre for Critical Heritage Studies at Gothenburg University, will address how the relation between life as such and social, cultural, political and economic barriers as produced by educational and heritage institutions in particular, can be challenged not only from the outside through civil counter-actions and independent self-organised practices, but also from within by more radical and inclusive forms of institutional practice seeking to decolonize the institutions, promoting a wider definition of social justice including nationals and non-nationals alike. The dialogue will focus on what can be done with inclusionary practices and how institutions of knowledge can support, befriend, embrace, organise, converse and ultimately act.

Invited speakers, Alessandro Petti and Gabi Dolff-Bonekämper will begin the dialogue with short presentations followed by an open talk session moderated by participants of Centre on Global Migration and Centre for Critical Heritage Studies.

Alessandro Petti, has spent the last decade developing an artistic, architectural and research practice, from Palestine, that is both theoretically ambitious and practically engaged in the struggle for justice and equality. He co-founded Campus in Camps with Sandi Hilal, an experimental educational program hosted in Dheisheh Refugee Camp in Bethlehem. In 2007, with Hilal and Eyal Weizman he co-founded Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency (DAAR) in Beit Sahour, Palestine, with the aim to combine an architectural studio and an art residency able to bring together architects, artists, activists, urbanists, film-makers, and curators to work collectively on the subjects of politics and architecture.

Prof. Gabi Dolff-Bonekämper, TU Berlin, holder of the 2017 2017 Humboldt Stipend Swedish-German Programme Research Awards for Scientific Cooperation, and hosted by the research cluster Curating the City within the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies & the Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg. Prof. Dolff-Bonekämper has a long-term presence in the international and in particular central European research debate on heritage and urban heritage, and has also a unique background in a combination of theory with impressive practice. For fifteen years she had a lead position at the Landesdenkmalamt in Berlin with responsibility for the extensive heritage documentation and preservation of the city of Berlin after the demolition of the wall. Since 2005 she holds a professorship in Denkmalpflege at the Institute for urban and regional planning at the Technical university of Berlin, and has since then developed the area of expertise Denkmalpflege into a unique and significant multidisciplinary research environment with extensive teaching assignments.
