Open Perspectives on Oskar Hansen
Courtesy Igor Hansen

a seminar in 3 sessions:
14, 21 and 28 March 2015
15:00 to 18:00
language: English 

For three Saturday afternoons, La Loge is focusing on Oskar Hansen’s practice and legacy.
Hansen was a visionary Polish architect, artist, theorist and pedagogue. In 1959, he developed what he called the ‘Open Form’ theory, a process-based philosophy that places human activity at the center of every discipline. With this dynamic seminar format, La Loge wants to provide the framework for a lively and critical reflection on Hansen from a variety of open perspectives: architectural, theoretical, plastic, aesthetic and so on.
Selected historical and private documentation of Hansen’s work will be available for consultation.
 
Seminar scenography conceived by Martin Belou (artist, FR) and Brendan Michal Heshka (artist, CA).
