“Today it’s not so important what you know but rather how you think. Progress, in this sense, is predicated by critical reflection on ways of knowing and disciplinary traditions of thought. This issue of Volume – the second in our series on learning – is dedicated to mapping the contemporary field of research that is pushing processes of knowledge production forward in architecture, art and the social sciences.”
Volume #48: The Research Turn is comprised entirely of interviews and conversations. We wanted to learn from those who have been instrumental in shifting the boundaries and shaping today’s landscape of creative knowledge production. The issue also includes the catalogue for BLUE: Architecture of UN Peacekeeping Missions by Malkit Shoshan, the Dutch contribution to the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale.
Volume #48 will be launching at the Dutch Pavilion of the Venice Biennale on May 27th, 2016 at 10am with a breakfast roundtable discussion dedicated to topics dealt with in BLUE. The discussion will feature Malkit Shoshan (FAST, curator of BLUE), Kai Vöckler (Archis Interventions Berlin), Reinier de Graaf (OMA) and Ethel Baraona Pohl (DPR-Barcelona).
