Lecture Series: Parallax Views on Architecture

In her lecture Nicole Timm presents her approaches to practice as a scenographer in theaters and in urban interventionist work in cooperation with the architects collective raumlaborberlin. She will illustrate the ludic drive being a theatrical principle and an elementary drive for humans, a proven tool for communication amongst actor and observer of diverse backgrounds and socializations in projects in the urban realm.

Lectureseries: Parallax Views on Architecture

Parallax is the displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object caused by a new line of sight. We all use this difference to gain depth perception. Astronomers use it to define the distance and outline of far away objects. Meanwhile Slavoj Zizek argues that the parallax gap causes not only an “epistemological” shift in the subject's point of view, but always reflects an “ontological” shift in the object itself, as subject and object are inherently mediated.

In seeking the oscillation between focus and productive indeterminacy, this year’s lecture series at the Institute of Art and Architecture examines the production of space from multiple points of view. And as nearby objects have a larger parallax than distant ones, we invite artists and researchers working in our immediate proximity–artists and researchers within the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna–who look at the subject of architecture and urbanism implicitly or explicitly in their work. As a result the lecture series will offer an array of alternate positions coexisting within the Academy and create a platform for transdisciplinary discussions at the intersection between art and architecture.  (Stefan Gruber)
