This guest lecture is part of the workshop (NOT) OUT OF PLACE – Post- and Decolonial Theories for a new Architectural Practice
What do we mean when we talk about terms like colonialism, postcolonialism, decoloniality and coloniality? And how do these terms/constructs/ideas shape the planned and built environment? How do we encounter colonial traces and racist structures in the city, in architecture, in the architectural practice and teaching? How do these relationships shape, for example, our aesthetics and the way we think and speak about space? How can these inscriptions in space be analyzed and transformed?
