“EXPERIMENTAL DIAGRAMMING. BETWEEN SPATIAL FIGURATION AND ABSTRACTION”
Over the past decades the diagram has developed into a constitutive, generative medium for architectural design. The diagram as a visual medium facilitates a medial translation of perceived configurations in the thinking process and vice versa. Yet, today diagram is a commonplace term and its generative meaning has almost disappeared in the everyday use of this word. The group exhibition “Experimental Diagramming. Between Spatial Figuration and Abstraction” reveals an experimental use of diagrams that show their performative and transformative essence, rediscovering and presenting new experimental practices of diagramming. The exhibition curated by Anna Hougaard and Lidia Gasperoni brings together work by Kim Albrecht, Peter Behrbohm, Peter Bertram, J. Michael Birn, Jana Culek, Gerhard Dirmoser, Riet Eckhout, Nikolaus Gansterer, Mark Garcia, Paul Heinicker, Anna Hougaard, Rachel Hurst, Ephraim Joris, Agata Kycia, Adam Marcus, Dominik Mohs, Philipp Reinfeld, Francois Roche / New Territories, Mira Sanders, Guro Sollid & Maja Zander, Neil Spiller, Studio Stradivarie and will take place at the Architecture Museum of the Technical University of Berlin, Germany.

"THE EXTENDED MIND"
'The Extended Mind' proposes that our cognition – that is our mind, thoughts, reasoning, perception, imagination, intelligence, emotion and experience – does not just take place within our brains. It also takes place through our bodies and the broader world and enabled by all the tools, technologies, institutions, materials and techniques we might use to orientate our understanding of where we are in the world. From shadow puppetry of extinct animals, to videos exploring the impact of electromagnetic waves on our thoughts and cultures, to robots that learn through contact and the idea that digital technology is driving us towards a new collective sense of self, 'The Extended Mind' is set across a diverse series of journeys to other real and imagined places. With work by Gianfranco Baruchello, Marcus Coates, Marjolijn Dijkman, Nikolaus Gansterer, Joseph Grigely, Agnieszka Kurant & John Menick, Myriam Lefkowitz, Daria Martin, William McKeown, Goro Murayama, Angelo Plessas, Magali Reus. Curated by Miranda Anderson, Tessa Giblin and James Clegg at Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh, in Scotland.
