Tuesday Night Live

Tuesday Night Live

Tuesday Night Live is an event series at the Technical University of Darmstadt with international thinkers and architects to share their current work and discuss with students, teachers and everyone stopping by. Each »season« has a prescription, a set of rules or questions, brought to live and filled with diverse content by the selected guests.

For the second season, New York artist Emily Shanahan has put together a conversation guide:

»The questions are adapted from psychological questionnaires, government polls, professional interviews with architects, personality quizzes, and job interview prompts. They follow established patterns of information extraction that seek to identify “types” of persons. Decontextualized and recombined, these questions elicit thinking beyond normative logics. Playing with the conventions of knowledge exchange, they ultimately ask:

Are there any new questions anymore?«

Tuesday Night Live is a event series by the chair of Architecture Theory and Science at the faculty of Architecture (@fb15architektur) at Technical University of Darmstadt, supported by the Sto-Stiftung (@stostiftung).
