Call for applications: three courses in architecture

Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm

Discursive exhibition and architectural intervention at Manifesta 12 in Palermo by the students of the Decolonizing Architecture Advanced Course, 2018.

Art in the Public Domain; The Art of Restorations; Decolonizing Architecture
The area of Architecture, formerly known as Mejan Arc, conducts advanced level urban research, focusing on recent societal changes and the ability of architecture to meet the needs of a liveable environment. Architecture at the Royal Institute of Art takes into consideration how cities are shaped by issues such as human rights, real estate and global capital, fostering an expanded understanding of the urban as a contested territory.

Art in the Public Domain
In the fall of 2019 the Royal Institute of Art is launching a new course, exploring the intersection of art and architecture. The course will include about 15 participants and be lead by artist Jonas Dahlberg, recently the subject of debate due to his winning proposal for the July-22 attack memorial in Norway. The course is aimed at actively practicing architects and artists.

The Art of Restoration: Structures of Democracy
This year's theme focuses on buildings such as civic centers, libraries, cultural centers and the like. Cohesive environments intended to physically manifest democracy, built in the twentieth century. The course is aimed at professionals. It is intended as an immersion in the theory, expression, and practice of the art of restoration, as well as in our built cultural heritage as a resource for social development. The course provides professionals active within their field with added expertise in architecture and built environments.

Decolonizing Architecture: Experimental Sites of Knowledge Production
Decolonizing Architecture at the Royal Institute of Art uses the term decolonization as a frame for examining the ideological, social, and political dimensions of architecture. The 2019–20 course explores architecture and knowledge production in relation to places, groups, experiences, and bodies. The course will be taught in English and is lead by Alessandro Petti, professor in Architecture and Social Justice, and Marie-Louise Richards, adjunct in Architecture. The course is aimed at applicants with experience in art, architecture, urban studies, critical theory, or activism.

The application opens April 8. Last day to apply to current courses in Architecture is May 8, at 1pm, 2019.
