Spaces of Many Dimensions

Between January and July 2017 the lecture series SPACES OF MANY DIMENSIONS will bring together a diversity of theoretical positions and artistic perspectives. Its title refers to the book ‚Flatland‘ by Edwin A. Abbott, describing the life of a square in two dimensions, extending the imagination towards the existence of a third and fourth dimension and beyond. His satire reveals the boundaries of an absolute knowledge and opens up a new perspective on the 'relativity of reality’ (Paul Watzlawick). 
The lecture series intends to initiate a dialogue on the topic of those manifold spatial dimensions: How can we generate spatial concepts that lie beyond the understanding of our existing design tools and methodologies, in order to design intricate social and atmospheric spaces? What is and what will be the role of the human in contemporary and future spatial design processes? What are possible experimental and utopian perspectives that embrace the existence of different realities, dissimilarities, enabling inclusiveness as well as social and ecological dimensions of space? ​

A lecture and workshop by Prof. Beatriz Colomina and Prof. Mark Wigley, curators of the 3rd Istanbul Design Biennal marked the beginning of the lecture series in January 2017.
