As the new professor at Mejan Arc introducing for the first time at KKH a course in Architecture Theory and History I am committed to developing a program focusing on advanced research, public events and related urban, architecture and design projects that are capable of questioning current educational practices and the profession at large. This vision recognises the role of advanced research in connecting the past to the present, as well as the role of communications and media in formulating open public discourse. If history can be read like a concept—paraphrasing from Fredric Jameson—then theory can suggest a practice.

As part of my vision for the course, I am extremely interested in developing research objectives that bring the Architecture program closer into the sphere of the KKH Art program, opening up to greater exchanges and experimentation among the disciplines. I have encouraged students in the course to explore in their individual urban, architecture and design research projects across a range of experimental productions and creative expressions, using the Institute’s excellent facilities, its  wood, plastic and metal shops, 3D printing labs, graphic departments, and video and electronic labs.

The student projects presented for the final review, on exhibit at Mejan Galleri, reflect both their individual research on a series of case-studies together with innovative production and communication values. These projects examine a broad array of places, including the faraway islands of Hawaii the remote regions of Pennsylvania, to nearby districts like Blasieholmshamen or Tensta. For the first year here at KKH, I think it important to put these works on display.

Haunted by the Shadows of the Future is a Workshop co-jointly run by STEALTH unlimited, Ana Dzokic and Marc Neelen with Peter Lang, Professor in Architecture History and Theory, Mejan Arc, KKH Stockholm.

Workshop Participants met with Anna-Greta Leijon for a discussion on her book: “Swedish Women, Swedish Men,” published in 1968, that highlighted some of the aspirations and setbacks in gender and work relations during the time when the Swedish Million Home Programme was building housing estates like Tensta outside Stockholm. The following Vimeo video  is a short excerpt from the full interview.

The Workshop has been developed together with Tensta Konsthall, for the exhibition: Tensta Museum, Reports from the New Sweden*

*26.10 2013-18.5 2014 Tensta Museum: Reports from New Sweden is about the history and memories of Tensta, both in relation to the place and to the people who live and work there. Some forty artists, architects, local associations, performers, sociologists, cultural geographers, philosophers, and others address the past in, for example, art works, research projects, seminars, and guided walks. At the same time they will be reporting on the condition of things in Tensta today, on what can be described as the “new Sweden.” This is a Sweden containing people of widely different backgrounds, where economic and social differences are palpably intensifying: according to a new OECD report, income gaps in Sweden are increasing the most rapidly of any of the 34 member states. In their contributions to Tensta Museum, some of the invited participants will also be looking forward and proposing future scenarios.

As part of the Haunted by the Shadows of the Future and Urban Re-Mix, the workshop participants visited the apartment of Lennart Svensson in the seventies housing complex in Tensta. Lennart is one of the oldest residents living in Tensta. Here we learn, among other things, about how Lennart and his wife purchased the art work on their walls.
