27th January from 4pm “Brutalism Redux: The political potency of brutalist architecture”, Dana Centre, Science Museum, London, curated by Oli Mould


The recent nostalgic revisiting of Brutalism as architectural form has been a welcome revival of a much loved architectural form. But many of these narratives are devoid of Brutalism’s powerful aesthetic and political critical concept. This panel and key-note lecture, will explore what it might mean to recover and engage with the full force of Brutalism as a critical political aesthetic.

14th February, 4 - 6 p.m. - Second Denis Cosgrove Lecture: Professor Dee Heddon, Tate Modern, 4-6 pm.

Discover walking as an art form and its potential for performative social and environmental encounters in this talk by artist Dee Heddon.
For artist and researcher Dee Heddon, walking is an aesthetic practice concerned with environments, encounters and exchange. Framed within the wider concern of the relationships between performance, art and landscape, this talk tells stories of walking as a space for exchange of experience, knowledge and relations. Please RSVP to geohumanities@rhul.ac.uk

These events explore how arts practices based in exchange (between artists and scientists; between artists and the environment; between artists and participants; amongst participants): might begin to respond to some of the environmental challenges of our times. A series of events will stage environmental encounters that explore the role of art and invite reflection on our relationship with the Earth.
