Lecture by Dana Kosmina
Emergency Architecture as a Response to Destructive Environment

Visual Culture Research Center and Political Critique invite you to the lecture by Dana Kosmina, taking place on Thursday, May 26, at 19:00.

The lecture is going to explore local communities, which influence urban processes through micro-architectonic interventions. Participants will learn what “depressive environment” is, who the “passive warriors” are, how much the “tactical urbanism” costs, which methods of “field work” exist, etc. Dana will give a brief analysis of her own and other international projects. Besides theoretical lecture, a joint practical workshop with participation of garage co-op community will be taking place for two weeks.

Dana Kosmina is a cofounder of Pylorama collective, artist and architect. She is a member of Children’s Geographies initiative. She works at Forma Architectural Studio in Kyiv.
