Matadero Madrid center for contemporary creation
A fundamental aspect of research on digital infrastructures is to visualize their effects on communities and ecosystems. This lab aims to provide strategies to visualize and communicate these processes through models encompassing information from diverse sources: field visits, interviews, municipal archives, aerial images, reports, youtube videos, and commercial brochures.
LABORATORY BY BARTLEBOOTH
12.45 - 2.30 PM
& 4.30 - 7.30 PM
Departing from their research project “Exhausted Soils,” Bartlebooth leads a workshop on visualization models of extractive dynamics of mining and energy projects, with an emphasis on the microhistories of these territories’ inhabitants. Often, “ectoplasmic territories” escape our everyday experiences and information flows. These visualization models facilitate their scrutiny. Drawings, diagrams, videos, and stories are generative and intentional media that reveal conditions that otherwise remain hidden.
Bartlebooth is a research and publishing platform that examines contemporary spatial practice through physical publications, web projects, audiovisual installations, exhibitions and workshops, among other formats. Founded in 2013 by Antonio Giráldez López and Pablo Ibáñez Ferrera, it has been awarded in contexts such as BIAU (2019, 2022), BEAU (2018) or Arquia/Próxima (2018), its work has been deployed in contexts such as the Portuguese Pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennale, Matadero (Madrid), the Het Nieuwe Instituut (Rotterdam), or the Porto Design Biennale (Porto).
VÍCTOR M. SANZ
7:30 - 8:30 PM
Victor M. Sanz is one of the leading researchers of Automated Landscapes, a project that reveals the distinct spatial conditions afforded by automated, data-driven technologies. Set in motion in opaque, corporate environments, analyzing these processes requires utilizing alternative sources to model and represent the architectures, territories, and struggles in an accessible manner. The project also emphasizes the commitment to sharing ideas against the forces that foreclosure public debate.
Víctor Muñoz Sanz is professor of urban design at the Technical University of Delft. His research focuses on the relationship between architecture, work and technology. Previously Víctor was: fellow at the Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart; coordinator of the Jaap Bakema Study Centre and co-principal investigator of Automated Landscapes at Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam; and emerging curator at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal. He has co-edited the books Roadside Picnics: Encounters with the Uncanny (dpr-barcelona, 2022), and Habitat: Ecology Thinking in Architecture (nai010, 2020). Víctor holds a PhD in Architecture from ETSAM, and a Master of Architecture in Urban Design from Harvard University.
