Artists Wesam Al Asali, FRAUD and Nastassja Simensky come together to bring a critical framing to the concept of preservation. Embracing different methodologies and spanning diverse contexts – from the Syrian conflict, to pre and postindustrial England – their practices shed light on issues of accountability, agency, power and ownership.
Architectures Of Control
Works exploring environmental and design 'controls', and the possibility of resistance.
What are the psychological aspects of design? How does our environment impact upon our behaviours? What is language's relationship with control? Are these systems of power or control? What do they enable, and what do they prevent? Architectures of Control explores these questions and more, opening up an investigation into the (im)possibilities of Loughborough University.
