After Belonging Conference: Presenting Speakers

Announcing speakers for the Conference After Belonging

On Friday September 09, OAT hosts its international Conference After Belonging in the Oslo Opera House. The Conference is part of the core program of the triennale, which designs the objects, spaces, and territories for a transforming condition of belonging.

What is architecture’s role in the contemporary reconfiguration of belonging? How has this process transformed the notion of residence? What are the spatial, technical, and sociopolitical consequences of this transformation?

The After Belonging Conference will bring together architects, thinkers, decision-makers, and local experts in order to dissect the architectures entangled in the contemporary reconfiguration of belonging. Among other topics, it will address architecture’s relation to current pressing questions such as refugeeism, migration and homelessness; new mediated forms of domesticity and foreignness; environmental displacements; tourism; and the technologies and economies of sharing.
