Entanglement

Entanglement,

Inspired by various artistic practices and urban geographical research (see below for some of our sources of inspiration), Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, presents the research project Entanglement. With this ongoing inquiry, we propose a topological understanding of space. Instead of an entity, a quantity, or an identity, each of which can easily be divided and sold, Entanglement brings forth pathways, lines, and relationships as ways of understanding – and forming - selves, collectives, institutions, and cities in common and for the commons. Making alternative pathways and developing diagrammatic visualizations of these pathways is central to the methodology of this project. Casco as an institutional space embedded in various contexts is also a subject of the investigation, leading us towards different modes of qualifying institutional affects.

The first edition of Entanglement took place in the framework of Urban Trajectories, a research project initiated by urban geographer Jan van Duppen together with the Utrecht architecture center Aorta and the Vrede van Utrecht (June 2013). The second edition took place in Jakarta for Siasat, the 15th Jakarta Biennale (9—30 November 2013.
