We are immersed in power, seen and unseen, intuitively and forcibly, felt and heard. It is tightly held, seldom deserved and often misplaced. As agents of facilitation negotiating environmental and temporal flux landscape architects play a vital role in articulating the narratives of human and non-human culture over time. We also address, navigate, and ultimately influence existing power structures intrinsic to the living world for better or worse.
With this in mind, Kerb 30: POWER intends to cast a floodlight into the interdisciplinary bullpen to reveal and examine the proverbial powers that make and unmake us.
How does power manifest?
How do we address existing ecologies of power?
Where are the opportunities to shift the power inherent in our landscapes?
KERB 30 is now calling for abstracts (maximum 300 words) that speak toPOWER within the context of landscape architecture and its constituents.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Abstracts exploring expressions of POWER in the form of essays, interviews, drawings and illustrations, photo-essays and projects are welcomed. Submissions from students, researchers, practitioners, thinkers, non-architects and non-humans will be warmly received until EOD 22th April, 2022.
