Architectural competitions and architectural debate. The Critics’ Salon of the Swedish Art Critics Association visits the Tuesday Club

Tuesday, 1 February 2011, 19:00

In her thesis “Architectural competition as performance,” Stina Hagelqvist analyses the increasingly strong position of architectural competition as a phenomenon. Architects gradually exercised greater control over the realization of competitions; the competitive process was institutionalized and rendered as a public service.

Stina Hagelqvist, who is an art historian, a teacher and a researcher of architectural history, will describe her research work showing pictures. A discussion will follow on the subject of architectural competitions – historically and today – with the participation of architect and critic Tomas Lewan.

A bar serving light food will be open from 18:30.

Address: Konstnärsklubben, 2nd floor, Smålandsgatan 7, Stockholm. Ring door bell marked ”Konstnärsklubben”.

The evening is arranged by the Swedish Art Critics Association in collaboration with the Tuesday Club – the meeting place for artists at Konstnärshuset (the Artists’ House) on the first Tuesday of every month.

This event is held in Swedish.
