Conflict and Architecture

Attended a talk today at the Venice Biennale. Taken apart from each other, each person’s solo talk was quite intriguing. One exhibitioner’s work was on forensic architecture, another was inside the DMZ in the Korean Peninsula, one was in a refugee camp and the other addressed the regiments of a 30 years civil war in Sri Lanka. 

Some of the interesting issues that came up:

  • Self-evident exhibition and unevident evidence. 
  • Muted violence in a serene wilderness in the DMZ.
  • Architecture’s reluctant role of disturbing the established orders in a refugee camp.
