Make Yourself at Home
2015 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
This paper examines the work of Dan Graham Artist (1942) and Björn Yngve Lövin artist (1937) focusing on their explorations into the home and family. Both artists were involved in a number of installations and proposals that tie together the relationship between the individual dwelling, the nuclear family, the re-thinking of public and private conditions accosted to dwelling and the emerging risk society. Although operating through art practice both Grahams and Lövins propositions involve the production and simulation of architectural space from within which a series of narratives critiquing contemporary society. This paper argues that the results of the work are early examples of relational aesthetics combined with production of "fictional enterprise" as described by Sven-Olov Wallenstein. How can architects use these examples as ground for future research in relation to the production of new spaces of dwelling?
