During the summer school ‘Negotiating Ungers: The Construction of Communities’ at the Ungers Archiv für Architekturwissenschaft in Cologne (July 2019), the project of German architect Oswald Mathias Ungers was analyzed with students from the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture and the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.

Following the summer school, nine students decided to continue their work on the subject and to further expand on the ideas developed. The results are now presented in an exhibition at CIVA from November 24th until February 13th, 2022. Besides original drawings by Ungers, the exhibition includes installations and analytical presentations, which critically negotiate Ungers’ project.

Curators of the expo: Cornelia Escher and Lars Fischer. Students: Yasaman Hedayat / Darcy Huang / Başak Işik / Cansu Koçdemir / Margot Schurmans / Annelien Seys / Amber Van Houdt / Robin Vleeschouwers / Ying Zhao. Photography: Bertrand Cavalier.

The opening of the exhibition takes place on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, 19:00.
