Work Archive

The Work Archive accumulates the interdisciplinary artistic, research and publication works of Christopher Dell. It constitutes the visible storage of the non-linear and complex processes and collaborations through wich his work has come into being. The thematic structure of the work archive is recursive, so that works can appear under different categories.

In toto Dell’s work is instigated by motives – themes and questions – of the contemporary city. Dell understands the city as an improvisational process, that comes about through actors, things, actions, discourses and vectors on sites. Being driven by motives, his work can take on different forms – such as writing a book, teaching urban design and architecture theory, playing or composing music, publishing a sound medium, lecture-performing, creating a sound installation, curating exhibitions or making objects. Within this diversity one aspect stays crucial: rather than displaying already produced objects inside an institution, Dell is interested in exhibiting the field of the production and reception of the artwork and the way it activates discourse.
