Jason Dodge
Wednesday, 5 December, 19h, Daimlerstrasse 32

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
Die Daimlerstrasse erreichen Sie u.a. mit der Straßenbahnlinie 11.

The works of Jason Dodge reference events that lie in the past or at an unreachable distance, events that occurred in discrete privacy or were so transient that they could not be captured. And yet they are precisely described by the objects left behind after their completion and by Dodge’s clearly-formulated titles. Dodge’s installations give rise to a feeling of longing; when viewing them, one must always consider what they lack. In no time at all, the viewer’s thoughts will lead to a distant place – a sunrise in Helsinki, for example, or Kerkenstraat in Merkelbeek or a Polish holiday home. As relics, the objects of his installations seem to yearn for the completion that only the viewer can accomplish in his own thoughts.
Jason Dodge lives and works in Berlin and New York. Recently he had an solo exhibition at Yvon Lambert Paris, last time in Frankfurt he was a participant of the group exhibition “Parallel Life” in Frankfurter Kunstverein.

the Architecture Class presents:

Designed Materiality - Public Lecture Series Winter Semester 2007-8
a series of lectures addressing the contemporary status of architecture in relation to material and design technologies.

Fabio Gramazio & Matthias Kohler: Digital Materiality
Thursday, 6 December, 19h, Portikus, Alte Brücke 2 / Maininsel

Alle Veranstaltungen der Architekturklasse finden in englischer Sprache statt.

Architects Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler are based in Zürich where they run their practice and teach at the ETH. Their principal interest lies in ‘digital fabrication,’ which includes using computerised processes to inform the making and transformation of materials for architectural ends. At the ETH, this comprises their having developed robotic manufacturing processes which have been employed in a number of recent projects.
For instance, of perforation, Gramazio and Kohler write: "Perforation is the name given to the multiple puncturing of flat surfaces or hollow bodies. The decisive factors are the arrangement, form, size and quantity of the holes. If the perforation is drilled crookedly rather than vertically into the material, it acquires a spatial effect."
Recent projects of the practice are Weingut Gantenbein, Fläsch (2006) and the Pavillon Seroussi, Paris (competition entry, 2007).
The Städelschule Architecture Class Lecture Series is supported by the Architekten- und Stadtplanerkammer Hessen.
