The Fundació Mies van der Rohe, together with BOZAR and UNINA, promotes the European project Artists in Architecture. Re-activating Modern European Houses. An initiative that aims to promote collaboration between artists, architects, students, professionals in the field of heritage and the public in general and at the same time opens an intergenerational and interdisciplinary dialogue that helps to define a contemporary vision and the future approach to conservation, restoration and reuse of a heritage as delicate and at risk as the single-family home.
Through a series of artists' residences organized in a selection of six unique houses located in Tervuren and Uccle (Belgium), Praiano and Pompeii (Italy), Bucharest (Romania) and Barcelona, the project aims to stimulate reflection and debate about the great heritage value, tangible and intangible, of much of the European modern domestic architecture, which has been built by the most avant-garde architects of its time or inhabited by protagonists of Europe's intellectual effervescence at various moments in its history.
On Wednesday, May 15, we invite you to the project presentation at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, with a round table where experts and representatives of local institutions linked to architectural and cultural heritage issues will discuss the present, past and future of these architectures, so fragile but decisive of the modern movement, and on the possible strategies for their preservation, adaptation and use. We will wait for you!
> And if you are a visual artist, architect, writer or interpreter in the EU, you have a proposal on how a contemporary artist can help to preserve and to revalue this characteristic architectural heritage and want to make two weeks of residence in one of these houses, consult here the bases and send your request. The call is open until May 15, 2019.
