Conceptual Research on Architecture and Music

Aedes Architekturforum, Christinenstraße 18-19, 10119 Berlin

On the occasion of Aedes Architecture Forum’s 40th anniversary, the series Dialogue Concerts. Conceptual Research on Architecture and Music presents a pluralistic media format, re-envisioning urban research. Architectural practice will enter into a dialogue with musical praxis.

Designed as a montage of lecture, concert and discussion, Dialogue Concerts will examine how urban space determines our communal life from December 2019 to December 2021. In this context, the city is not defined as a fixed object, but as a dynamic and collective constellation that is performatively produced.

Curated by the vibraphonist, composer and urban theoretician Christopher Dell, Dialogue Concerts is presented as artistic statement and critical dispositif. International architects and musicians are invited to address aspects of procedural strategies across disciplines over the course of one year. Taking questions of mediality, corporality, interaction, materiality, structure and transformation as starting points, Dialogue Concerts creates a discursive space seeking to illustrate the societal relevance of both disciplines in a new way.
