Voices series for December: Architecture on Screen

ARUCAD Art Space’s this month’s Voices guests, Marko Kiessel and Cem Yardımcı will talk about: Architecture on Screen with focusing on two topics: ‘Mise en scène of the “home” in urban Science Fiction films’ and “The individual space in the correlation of architecture and science fiction.”

Marko Kiessel, will introduce and discuss examples of visualization of “homes” in several Science Fiction narratives of the 20th to 21st centuries. His talk does not thematize visions of future forms of dwelling but possible specific and generalizable meanings of architecture, conveyed mainly through dystopian narratives.

Cem Yardımcı will explore the alienism of the individual through some examples of architectural thinking and texts of science fiction creation.

Those who are interested in architecture, design and cinema are all invited to the talk on the 17th of December 2019, Tuesday at ARUCAD Art Space (Nicosia) at 18:00.
The talk will be held in English.
