Cinema Studies Events - Fall 2019

  • After Concrete Architecture: Li Juchuan in Conversation with Professor Thomas Looser

    In 1996, Li Juchuan drafted a semi-manifesto “Concrete Architecture,” declaring his approach to architecture that both penetrates and transcends the very discipline at that time in China. For him, Concrete Architecture concerns the question: how does architecture become possible, at this time, at this place, for one as an individual? Architecture is a privileged lens through which Li’s performances, videos, and site-specific installations are understood. Particularly, video was the new site and material for architecture, allowing new possibilities for architecture. Two decades after the manifesto, what have changed and what remained the same? How does architecture become possible now, when the condition of urban dwelling has completed transformed?
