Missions and Missionaries

seminar

Missions will examine the large-scale international flow of war into the civic realm through a public discussion of the mechanisms and agendas behind these transitions, which include religion, migration, economy, war, peace and diplomacy. The programme of the day is constructed around these six topics. The seminar will navigate between scales and agendas in order to explore contemporary global missions – the institutional ones and the missionaries.

The UNMANNED

publicationseries

Missions will be documented as part of another long-term initiative, UNMANNED, a publication series co-edited by Malkit Shoshan (FAST), Ethel Baraona (DPR-Barcelona) and Marina Otero (Studio-X Global Network, GSAPP), which addresses the possibilities and impact of security structures and technologies with respect to the built environment. What are the spatial and ethical implications of warfare technology? How can emerging technologies be leveraged to offer alternatives to the spatial assemblage of contemporary power? Can or should architects go beyond the visualisation and exposure of the militarisation of public space?
