Feminist Fairytales, Parties and Eating Together as Spatial Practices
–– A Conversation with Maria Muuk and MYCKET
Monday, 14 December 2020, 16:00 (EET)
Could fiction and eating dinner together be seen as ways to question the conventional methods of spatial and design practices? Can these careful methods create more resilient and discursive architecture and design culture? In the talk, the art & architecture group MYCKET (Mariana Alves Silva, Katarina Bonnevier, and Thérèse Kristiansson), graphic designer/writer/baker Maria Muuk and curator Kaisa Karvinen investigated strategies in each of their practices and dreamt about possible roles of architects and designers in the neighborhoods of current society. The talk started with a short reading.
This is one of three talks that took place in December 2020. The other two were:
The Indeterminate Terrain Between Disciplines

(Re)configuring Territories is a three-year program (2019, 2021—2022) organized jointly by the Finnish Institute in Estonia, Narva Art Residency, Narva Urban Lab and Trojan Horse. The program is kindly supported by the Kone Foundation.
