Interpretations: Promiscuous Encounters

Departing from the Adhocracy “Open Call” statement, Promiscuous Encounters will launch four questions to deploy a conversation. An open discussion will take the form of a roundtable with invited speakers from multiple backgrounds. Everyone attending the event is invited to actively engage in the conversation. In our first encounter, we examined the interplay between the critical, curatorial and conceptual capacities of architecture, as well as when and where an architectural practice is subject to an inevitable and productive promiscuity. With this second iteration of Promiscuous Encounters, we are putting into practice a promiscuous mode of operation by interfering in the Istanbul Design Biennial as a site of criticality. Invisibility, Design, Value and Commons will be under discussions.
