Actors and Vehicles of Architectural Criticism

Architectural Criticism 20th and 21st Centuries, a Cartography

*  *  *

Publié le mardi 20 septembre 2016 par João Fernandes

Résumé

This second international workshop takes into consideration the actors and the vehicles of criticism: with these terms it refers to both the agents of criticism (critics, architects, historians, publishers, photographers, institutions, etc.) and the media through which criticism is disseminated (press, photography, exhibitions, etc.). The workshop aims to expand the knowledge about the specific functions of these actors and their networks and to outline their mutual relationships. The four sessions investigate the links between the actors, the media of criticism, and the historical contexts within which they materialize, as well as the cultural, intellectual, and institutional milieus from which they originate.

Second International Workshop Mapping.Crit.Arch: Architectural Criticism 20th and 21st Centuries, a Cartography Université Rennes 2 - Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR-14-CE31-0019-01)

Argument

After the first workshop at the Université Rennes 2 (January 2016),centered on the relationship of criticism to “public opinion” and on criticism as an autonomous discipline, Actors and Vehicles of Architectural Criticism (Università di Bologna, October 4-5, 2016)is the second of three international workshops planned by the Mapping.Crit.Arch: Architectural criticism 20th and 21st centuries, a cartography researchproject (funded by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche, ANR) to foster scholarship on the history of architectural criticism and facilitate exchanges between scholars active in this field of research.

This second international workshop takes into consideration the actors and the vehicles of criticism: with these terms it refers to both the agents of criticism (critics, architects, historians, publishers, photographers, institutions, etc.) and the media through which criticism is disseminated (press, photography, exhibitions, etc.). The workshop aims to expand the knowledge about the specific functions of these actors and their networks and to outline their mutual relationships. The four sessions investigate the links between the actors, the media of criticism, and the historical contexts within which they materialize, as well as the cultural, intellectual, and institutional milieus from which they originate.

The first session Vehicles and Actors: Journals, Newspapers and their Editors deals with the influence on the forms, discourse, and contents of criticism on the part of specific types of journals, from daily newspapers, to cultural magazines and building construction periodicals and wants to put into question the categories that recurrently describe the so-called “typologies of criticism”. The second (Institutions, Exhibitions, Competitions) and fourth (Critical Competencies) sessions intend to broaden the notion of “actor” of architectural criticism not only to encompass critics or authors (the same notion of “authorship” in criticism might be subject to question) but also to include professional and academic institutions, publishers, and the various specialists who are involved in the actual production of professional publications. As a different vehicle of architectural criticism, the third session (Visual Criticism) would like to pay attention to the photographic image and, more generally, to the visual components of architectural criticism.
