Approaching Citizenship

Part of the Fall 2018 Experiments in Pedagogy: Agit Arch Experiments, organized by Ana Miljacki

Co-curators of the U.S. Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, Ann Lui and Mimi Zeiger will give insight into the curatorial practices and research which led to Dimensions of Citizenship. Interrogating the spatial conditions of design and citizenship, their exhibition presents works by architects, designers, artists, and thinkers who are responding to today’s shifting modes of citizenship, and putting forth visions of future ways of belonging.
