AAVS Frankfurt | Rhein Main will again be tutored by AA graduate Friedrich Gräfling and is being coordinated by Johanna Stemmler and Victor Sardenberg.
This year AAVS Frankfurt | Rhein Main has teamed up with the Architecture department of th Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. Most working and tutorial sessions will be held at their main campus.
The compiled research in form of student projects will be publicly exhibited at the Gallery Spave “Salon Kennedy”, Frankfurt.
Check out previous AAVS #1 exhibition.
Half way through the workshop a symposium with relevant protagonists from architecture, territorial planning and art institutions will be held to test and discuss the so far elaborated language of the AAVS PMCA strategies.
Through precise exercises, workshops and field trips, students will again develop their own understanding of today's art museum and of the transformation in the rural landscape in Europe. Further group works will apply the specific strategies to the respective territory.
2017 will focus on the “Flughafen Wald“ or the Airport Forest, an inner buffer zone, in the middle of the Metropolitan and one of the busiest transport hubs in central Europe.
PMCA #1 - WALK
Last year 2 distinct visions for the Spessart, one of Germanys uplands in Hessia, close to Frankfurt, have been thought through by the students, presented in form of a public exhibition at the Gallery “Salon Kennedy” in Frankfurt.
constitutes a museum today in the 21st century?
With a focus on the Rhein-Main area, it´s central power-house Frankfurt and the surrounding uplands, we aim at identifying, conceptualizing and realizing cross territorial supply chains - series of coherent processes - to develop the Peripheral Museum of Contemporary Art.
Theses supply chains of the museum exemplify a cultural network through architectural interventions. Through them, we will redefine territorial strategies in order to connect the metropolitan with the rural and vice versa, expanding an exchange beyond political and economical boundaries.
Each year we focus on a different landscape and thematic strategy, developing various respective scenarios. Thereby, a unified policy with different levels of intensifications, new relations and negotiations within the territories and across the metropolitan space will be formed - the Peripheral Museum of Contemporary Art // PMCA.
This notion forms the base to all arising questions within the AA School Visiting Program in Frankfurt/Rhein Main. The supreme discipline for an architect, a cultural building, will not be thought as a formalistic exercise, but rather as a neo-political question, a sociological development and territorial connection; allowing the design to form the answers.
Today's central European landscape can be defined as a multiple image of a fragmented space with little dynamics within its territorial elements. A clear division towards the rural area is taking place resulting in a cultural split with the metropolitan space. While the rural is economically still strongly positioned, it tends to loose its social and cultural voice resulting in isolation.
