ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATION VISITING SCHOOL, 2015.
Sidelong Glances, Co-tutored with Alejandra Celedón
July 20-31. 2015, Mexico City .
As an approach to the issue of architectural knowledge and visuality, this workshop will draw on the images of photojournalist Enrique Metinides, who from 1946 to 1993 photographed crimes and accidents across Mexico City. The city caught in the sidelong glance of the lens over a span of 50 years offers an alternative reading: a montage of the city observed in its contingencies. What traces, what forms of the city, do these images inhabit? What kinds of cities is it possible to see in them? What do they articulate about Mexico City?
