White Building Schizoanalysis, from Theory of Urban Form
Living Arts City, A Workshop is a collaboration between SA SA BASSAC and the Urban Design BS Program at Parsons The New School for Design. It is also part of Living Arts City a multi-course practicum which links multiple courses and events at The New School to provide an intellectual context for Season of Cambodia, a major international arts festival taking place in New York City throughout April and May of 2013.
Learning from Cambodia artists, this workshop will ask the following questions: How can innovative community-based practices in arts and education that elude rational notions of urban governance participate in the transitions of post-crisis cities? How can we as design students facilitate Cambodian design students, artists and other urban actors to foreground the operation and production of the informal cultural ecologies in Cambodia? Where else do we see this happening in other parts of the world? For example how can both Phnom Penh and New York be sustained as a “living arts cities”?
Living Arts City, A Workshop from January 14th-18th 2013 includes students from Parsons The New School for Design, New York, Chulalongkorn University International Program for Design and Architecture, Bangkok and Royal University of Fine Arts, RUFA, Phnom Penh. It is coordinated by Victoria Marshall and Brian McGrath, with teaching fellows, Joshua Brandt and Jonathan Lapalme.
