On 14 July 2020, the presentation takes place of the first results of Values for Survival, the public research programme accompanying Who is We? – the Dutch contribution to the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale.
Values for Survival
The presentation will be in two parts. During the first part, Values for Survival - Cahier 1 will be presented. Cahier 1 brings together a wide diversity of voices on a number of urgent social, urban and ecological issues. Reflections from the worlds of policy, research and design contextualise the main question of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia: How will we live together? – as well as the counter-question posed by the Dutch pavilion: Who is we?
International Online Exploratorium
The second part of the afternoon presents the first results of the International Online Exploratorium - Cahier 2. The Exploratorium, which was originally meant to use the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia as a learning environment, has been transformed into an online research programme. Artists, designers, researchers and activists from different parts of the world collaborate on their own thematic research projects, based on different topics or ‘tracks’. Within (and between) the tracks, new working methods are developed that make connections between fields such as social and physical sciences, art, design, architecture, and more-than-human life worlds. The Exploratorium is co-curated by We Are Here Venice. New values for survival are created with and for Venice. The results of these collaborations will form the second Cahier, partly designed by the participants themselves.
