Explore themes of data entanglement with ANNEX and friends at the IAF Summer School in Galway and online this July.
This year’s Summer School is informed by themes explored in Entanglement, the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2021. Curated by ANNEX Collective, Entanglement is now on show at the Fairgreen Gallery in Galway as part of the Galway International Arts Festival. Its themes include the physicality of data infrastructure, exchange and communication, and the environmental, cultural and human impact of data.
Having opened with 2 in-person events in Galway City and County on 12 July (see separate listing), the IAF Summer School concludes with an online seminar to enable a wider audience to take part.
Speakers: Donal Lally, Clare Lyster and Fiona McDermott (ANNEX) with Patrick Bresnihan (Maynooth University, Department of Geography)
Taking the Entanglement exhibition as a starting point, members of the ANNEX curatorial team discuss the materiality of data and the interwoven human, environmental, and cultural impacts of information and communication technologies. Geographer Patrick Bresnihan will discuss the material footprint of technology within the environment.
Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
