2019 Para Site International Conference

VIEW EVENT DETAILS  
1010AC

Para Site’s 2019 International Conference is organised in dialogue with the “Spinning Triangles” project. Initiated by SAVVY Contemporary on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, the project seeks to challenge and act against the inherent, neocolonial power structures in design practice, theory, and teaching.

This collaboration, triangulating Dessau/Berlin, Kinshasa, and Hong Kong, is currently in the process of establishing a connected and growing platform for unlearning. The 2019 Para Site International Conference will further invite leading theorists, academics, critics, writers and producers from around the world to engage and gain from each other’s research, and share with Hong Kong’s audience their own critical perspectives.

Talks by: Andreas Siagian, Clara Balaguer, Christian Nyampeta, and Lupe Fiasco

Day 2 (2:00pm – 7:00pm):
