Ruins, Appropriation and the Archive

Podcasts 26 May 17 0

The talk was aired live inside the Tropenmuseum with Rene Boer, an urban researcher and writer based in Amsterdam. We discussed about his research collective called “failed architecture”. The discussion went further to the notion of “ruin” as a critical entry point in questioning architecture in its relation to power structure. The discussion was followed by unveiling the notion of appropriation through squatting practice either in Amsterdam context and its critical dimension at looking archives in museal context. Concept of appropriation led us to the unavoidable dimension of spatiality of the colonial archive and the question of contemporariness of heritage. The talk was conducted by Fiky Daulay and Nuraini Juliastuti. Editor: Fiky Daulay

Podcasts 23 May 17 0

“Live tour at Dapperbuurt” was created as part of Kunci’s research residency project at Tropen museum at Heterotropics#2. The tour contained a discussion and a walk with a Dutch architecture historian Marieke Van Rooy. The discussion was started with her Phd research with 3 case studies area in Netherland: Biljmermeer, Dapperbuurt, and Almere. She has been researching about the shift of development in the areas since 60’s-70’s. The interconnection among the areas lays on the separation of the immigrants and the city in Biljmejmeer as it was also reflected by the constant changing of the Dapperbuurt development. The discussion was followed by her dilution trilogy project about psychiatric institutions which are related to the Netherlands. It was later followed by visiting Dapperbuurt where few examples pragmatic development of the housing were. It led us to how Marieke used the archive from initiator of the collaboration of inhabitants of Dapperbuurt with architects they chose during the 60’s. The interview was conducted by Fiky Daulay.
