Unless Ever People
2018, Flanders Architecture Institute
This book is published on the occasion of the ‘UNLESS EVER PEOPE / CARITAS FOR FREESPACE’ exhibition in the Central Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Unless, the experiment. Merely from the perspective of what is there, and looking for what is still possible. Without defining the programme or expectation as such. Except for the expectation that the usual ideas might take a turn – might result in a Wendung.
This book is published on the occasion of the ‘UNLESS EVER PEOPLE / CARITAS FOR FREESPACE’ exhibition in the Central Pavilion at the Biennale Architettura 2018 in Venice, Italy. The exhibition was commissioned by curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara as part of the general theme ‘FREESPACE’, for which they invited architecten de vylder vinck taillieu to present the project CARITAS. This project was realized in a remarkable collaboration with commissioner KARUS, who was heavily involved in the process, and with the guidance of BAVO, an independent research office focused on the political and socio-economic aspects of art, architecture and spatial planning. Participation was the key to this project, in which everyone involved became a co-creator. This publication is a production of the Flanders Architecture Institute and forms a next step for the project, which is continuously looking for new insights in the use of space for care – whichever way it goes.
