BUREAU is pleased to take part in the discussion taking place on 24 May 2023 at the Graduate Geneva Institute on the diplomacy of public spaces.
PERFORMING DIPLOMACY, MAKING SPACE PUBLIC: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY DISCUSSION BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE, PERFORMING ARTS AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Architects, designers, performing artists and social scientists reflect today on the material infrastructures that empower the public, allowing them to voice their desires and exchange opinions in local, national or transnational arenas and contexts. This panel will highlight three types of projects related to the construction of publics and diplomatic fora, starting with the new ephemeral public space in construction by the EPFL school of architecture and its students in the vicinity of the Place des nations. Then, it will move onto performances based on simulations of environmental diplomacy proposed by the Rimini Protokoll. The panel will end with forthcoming interdisciplinary experiments at the frontier of international relations and design studies.
