Multiplicity

Multiplicity
Descrição do conteúdo da imagem Bookworm Pavillion de Nudes, Índia © Sameer Chawda

Multiplicity features the work of individuals, practices and organisations from across the globe experimenting in myriad ways with architecture. Often working in demanding environmental, social and political conditions, these practitioners are pushing the boundaries of practice. In the process, they challenge our staid definition of what architecture is, while reclaiming and redefining it as a powerful tool in fighting for environmental, economic and social equity and justice. An agile, new architecture of institutions and communities, mirroring and learning from the uncertainties of our time is emerging in the process. This exhibition presents a multiplicity of such examples.

Questionabilis. Why architecture today?

Installation: 02/10 — 08/01/2023

Event: 26/11, 15h

© Warehouse Collective

The question wants to provoke an open and broad conversation about architecture. Trying to answer it, our minds are propelled to a process of filtration, of considering and discarding arguments, beliefs, and dogmas, to hopefully reach a reasoning that truthfully conveys our viewpoint. We invite the visitor to contribute to this installation with their thoughts.

The answers will then feed an open conversation builds a shared reflection on architecture’s relevance and responsibility towards society today. 26 November at 15h, in the gardens of MNAC, Warehouse Collective together with Pedro Gadanho will moderate this discussion while Miguel Magalhães will draw it up. A challenge for those who question themselves and want to think about ‘what are we doing here’.

White Building © Kavich neang

During November we will screen a series of films in the lobby of MNAC to enrich the reflection proposed in Multiplicity about the limits of architectural practice. Five new insights of architecture and urban space chosen by the curators, in a selection of films covering territories as diverse as India, Cambodia, Mexico, Russia and Portugal.

06 and 20 November the sessions are preceded by an annotated tour to Multiplicity.

Sunday: 06/11, 16h30 [60 minutes]
Shoonya Ghar
by Sudarshan Shetty
This film, based on a 12th century work by the poet Gorakhnath, follows the construction of a set in an abandoned quarry. Staging a dramatic action that mobilises the conventions of birth, death, dance, theatre, music and violence in local storytelling traditions, Shoonya Ghar reflects on scenography, music and performance as three distinct processes that are fundamental to cinematic narrative.

Sunday: 13/11, 16:30 [90 minutes]
White Building
by Kavich Neang
White Building follows the daily lives of three young men who live in this emblematic housing building in Phnom Penh, which is about to be demolished. In a city in rapid change, the film observes the conflicts between progress and tradition, symptomatic of Cambodia’s unstable social times, through the dreamlike eyes of the protagonists.

Sunday: 20/11, 16h30 [60 minutes + 23 minutes]
Bosque, Agua, Tierra, Fuego
by Sandra Calvo
Lisbon premiere of the most recent work by Sandra Calvo, an artist working in contexts marked by political and social conflicts and in disputed urban and rural territories. Her practice makes use of the tools of urbanism, archaeology and anthropology for explorations that take shape in works such as films, installations or books.

Topographies of Body and Landscape
by Vitor Hugo Costa
Screening of the film produced by Metafilmes documenting a research of choreographic movement and spatial experiences during Theatrum Mundi’s Movement Forum Lisbon Lab at Palácio Sinel de Cordes in October 2021. This workshop worked on two key concepts of this collective’s practice: bodies and city, proposing a notion of continuous topography that begins inside each body to merge with the architectural landscape of the city.

Sunday: 27/11, 16h30 [95 minutes]
Garage People
by Natalija Yefimkina
In her debut documentary film, director Natalija Yefimkina observes the people who inhabit garages on the outskirts of a mining town in northern Russia. You rarely find a car behind these doors – each one is used differently, occupied by lonely owners.

This book is part of a collection of pocket-size books for the sixth edition of Lisbon Architecture Triennale, edited by the curators of this exhibition and published in partnership with Circo de Ideias.

As cities expand at an unprecedented rate, how can the disciplines of design and architecture be reinvented to respond to growing inequalities, climate change and conflict? This book presents a diversity of collective or informal processes that adapt or subvert modes of action with ad-hoc methods to face these global challenges, as well as examples of projects at different scales that expand the definition of architecture, its forms and protagonists.
