AbstractINHABIT EXHIBIT
A collective manifesto

"But Grandmother! What big eyes you have," said Little Red Riding Hood. "The better to see you with, my dear," replied the wolf.

Since when are windows so big?
Since when are exhibitions so real?
How does the inside and the outside relate?

Students are invited to give answers to these questions and develop them further.
ObjectiveOur aim is to develop a new teaching form for the history and theory of architecture. Students will evolve their writing skills and they will engage with theories and practices of exhibiting (and inhabiting).
ContentINHABIT EXHIBIT
A collective manifesto

"But Grandmother! What big eyes you have," said Little Red Riding Hood. "The better to see you with, my dear," replied the wolf.

Since when are windows so big?
Since when are exhibitions so real?
How does the inside and the outside relate?

Students are invited to give answers to these questions and develop them further.

Starting with three concrete sites – the grotto of the healer Emma Kunz in Würenlos whose artistic work will be exhibited in Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau, IKEA in Spreitenbach, the first IKEA branch outside Scandinavia, and the village of Quinten at Walensee, a microcosm about to become a museum of itself - students will develop during the semester written essays, video-essays or exhibition scenarios as part of a collective manifesto.

Our aim is to increase the knowledge and sensitivity of architecture students toward the issue of exhibiting and inhabiting, to increase their skills in writing and reading, to make their voices heard and to develop a new teaching form for the history and theory of architecture.
