Make sure you don’t miss Malkit Shoshan‘s seminar on 27 November about the impact of peace-keeping missions. To get a preview on her ideas on the matters at stake, read her article in Volume #40: Architecture of Peace Reloaded.
A clear distinction once existed between the battlefield and the civic realm. That distinction seems to have disappeared: war has become part of public space. This fact becomes exceptionally transparent in the context of peacekeeping missions and the reconstruction of regions struck by war.
This Thursday the seminar Missions & Missionaries in Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam will examine the meaning of missions for architecture and planning, our physical surroundings, and the organisation of public and civic space.
