Gastvortrag von Mimi Zeiger: Gone Soft: On ”Soft Schindler“ and other projects

  • Diese Veranstaltung hat bereits stattgefunden.
Critic and curator Mimi Zeiger will discuss how hard issues raised in her critical writings are tested in curatorial settings and how softness might be a place of resistance. She’ll offer insight into the curatorial practices and research which led to the exhibition “Soft Schindler” and discuss the 2021 opening of ”Exhibit Columbus”, entitled ”New Middles”. Interrogating the spatial conditions of design and belonging, and rethinking conventional binaries embedded in architectural histories, these exhibition presents works by architects, designers, artists, and thinkers who put forth visions of being and new ways of making through conceptual and material practice.
Mimi Zeiger is a Los Angeles-based critic, editor, and curator. Her work is situated at the intersection architecture and media cultures. She was co-curator of the U.S. Pavilion for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale and ”Soft Schindler” at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture. Currently, she is curating ”Exhibit Columbus”, entitled ”New Middles: From Main Street to Megalopolis, What is the Future of the Middle City?”
She has written for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Architectural Review, Metropolis, and Architect and is an opinion columnist for Dezeen. Zeiger is the 2015 recipient of the Bradford Williams Medal for excellence in writing about landscape architecture. She teaches at SCI-Arc and the Media Design Practices MFA program at Art Center College of Design.
