The Agendas series brings together prominent thinkers and practitioners to address modes of research. The goal of the series is to accumulate knowledge on research methodologies that engage diverse topics across the fields of visual culture and the built environment. Agendas is an invitation and platform for ongoing engagement between MIT and individuals who play a role in creating challenging and timely discourse.
Agendas: Politics of Production is the first iteration of the series, featuring a themed symposium, “Politics of the Image,” and two lectures tackling concerns of production in art, architecture, theory and ecology. The “Politics of the Image” symposium stages a conversation between three practitioners in art and architecture to address the most ubiquitous form of production: the image.
This series is conceived by Duygu Demir (PhD, History, Theory and Criticism of Architecture and Art) and Lucy Liu (SM, Architectural Design), in conversation with Professors Ana Miljacki and J. Meejin Yoon.
