The session will take the form of an open discussion forum where students will have to reflect on their curatorial strategies and the intended message of their designs. The forum is part of the design studio ‘Showing and Producing Architecture’ led by Marta M Roy Torrecilla.

Marina Otero Verzier, Director or Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut, will share her experience and knowledge on exhibition models, curatorial practices, social experiments, as well as their legacy and political implications.

Marina Otero Verzier is an architect based in Rotterdam. She is Director of Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut, where she leads research initiatives such as ‘Automated Landscapes’, focusing on the emerging architectures of automated labour, and ‘Architecture of Appropriation’, on squatting as spatial practice.
