About

Focusing on the theme of Urban Materialities, this year's Urban Encounters symposium highlights practices from a range of disciplines - including architecture, archaeology, visual arts and geography - that engage with notions of thing-ness. The interdisciplinary contributions bring distinctive, yet overlapping concerns to the investigation, critical analysis and theorizing of materialities within the urban context. These can include geographies of security and surveillance, bodies, surfaces, everyday objects, or larger architectural forms. Panels engage with these concepts and practices through the themes of Sensibilities, Objecthood, and Disappearances. Speakers include Peter Fraser, Adrian Lahoud, Corinne Silva, Paola Yacoub, and Paul Goodwin, Cristoph Lueder, Nick Ferguson and Rachel Jones. This symposium is organised in collaboration with Goldsmiths College Centre for Urban and Community Research and Kingston University's Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture, and is part of the annual Urban Photo Fest.
