Architecture Open Lecture: Ulrika Karlsson

Thursday 22 February, 2018

The second lecturer of the Open Lecture Series this spring semester will be Ulrika Karlsson, stepping on the stage of Kanuti Gildi Saal (Pikk 20, Tallinn) on 22nd of February at 6 pm. Her lecture is titled “Rustic Figurations and Aesthetics Of the Fall”.

Ulrika Karlsson is an architect and founding member servo stockholm and of the newly started architectural design collaborative Brrum. She is a professor of architecture at KTH School of Architecture, with a focus on digital methods and tools. Karlsson is also a professor at Konstfack – University College of Arts, Craft and Design. She has been a visiting faculty at Bartlett, UCL, London, teaching Urban Design. Karlsson has also taught at UCLA’s Department of Architecture and Urban Design. She received her Architecture degree from Columbia University and Landscape Architecture degree from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

Karlsson has lectured and exhibited internationally and contributed to numerous journals including Perspecta, Via, Arkitektur and AD. She has exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Centre Pompidou, ArkDes, SFMoMA, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Wexner Center for the Arts, MoMA/QNS, Artists Space, the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, and the Storefront for Art and Architecture. servo’s work is part of the permanent collections of SFMoMA and the FRAC Centre.

Engaging a playful use of technology and material experimentation, her practice has a specific interest in the role of architectural representations and their translations, where we sometimes encounter the conflation of material and information. A current project with Brrum includes “And or not”, a proposal for a public artwork for the planned new park, Norrastationsparen in Hagastaden, Stockholm, which will be finished 2021.

The Open Lecture Series brings to Tallinn a number of exciting architects, urban planners, academics from across the world. All Open Lectures are free of charge, in English, take place every fortnight, and are open to everyone – for both students and professionals of the field, general audience and students considering architecture for their further studies.

The architecture and urban planning department of the Estonian Academy of Arts has been curating the Open Lectures on Architecture series since 2012 – each year, a dozen architects, urbanists, both practicing as well as academics, introduce their work and field of research to the audience in Tallinn. All lectures are in English, free and open to all interested, drawing an audience of students as well as professionals and academics from the fields of architecture, design, engineering but also fine arts. The series is funded by the Estonian Cultural Endowment.

Curators: Sille Pihlak, Siim Tuksam

EKA + Aalto students exhibition System & Error at EKKM

Friday 23 February, 2018

System & Error

Exhibition: 23rd February / 4th March

Off-season Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM),

Opening Party: 18:00 / Friday 23rd

Ordinary life is made of eventful junctures, constant surprises and adjustments that go beyond all attempts to rigorously plan and design things. Infrastructures crack, smart phones make errors, printers print funny stuff, states fail and the financial market fall into cyclical crises; Also our body can react strangely. All these failures have an aura though: they do not occur twice in the same way and produce the adrenaline of edges. Paraphrasing Tolstoy, all the families are successful alike, but failed in their own unique way.

The artworks of this exhibition have been produced honouring the meaning of collaboration, since the groups of artists are composed with MA students from Aalto University and from the Estonian Academy of Arts, which adds to the exhibition a reflection about the risks, potentials and failures of cooperation between artists and between institutions. For the exhibition, students have engaged with how misbehaviours and things out of place constitute a terrain of experimentation, addressing different meanings of systems, randomness and dead ends, and facing questions such as:

  • Do failures need an excuse?
  • What does an error look like?
  • What is the benefit of being part of a system?
  • How much tolerance for the non-perfect do our societies have?
  • Is a list of failures more revealing than a list of successes?
  • Are gaps, holes, tricksters and hackers part of the system or the error?
  • In which ways systems are organised by defining some practices as normal and some others as deviant (noise, dirt, queer…)?
  • And does anything right might come from pursuing wrong practices?
