Venue

Plasy Monastery

The seminar Architecture and the Senses took place at Plasy Monastery from 12–14 October, 2018, and included lectures, workshops, performances, interventions, and discussions. It brought together a group of artists, curators, and thinkers from across Europe to reflect on questions such as: What type of acoustic environment is beneficial or detrimental for people and other beings? Is there even such a thing as a natural, healthy acoustic environment which is fitting for humans, irrespective of other beings?

A video report by Dominik Žižka captures some striking moments from the seminar.
