Lecture / Katarina Bonnevier: When walls speak – Herstories and Contemporary Feminism in Architecture

Sunday 22 May, 2022, 3–4.30 pm | Museum of Finnish Architecture: large exhibition hall, 2nd floor
Language: English (unfortunately the live captioning is cancelled due to illness)
Participation: 10/5/0 € / Museum Card

Departing from the collective practice of which Katarina Bonnevier is part – the architecture, design and art collective MYCKET collaborations – she will braid herstories in architecture. That is, bring out the relations between our contemporary feminist practices with those who have gone before us.


Katarina Bonnevier

In her practice artist, architect and researcher Dr. Katarina Bonnevier explores relations of architecture, aesthetics, and power, especially from gender perspectives, informed by theatricality, queerness and the more-than-human. She is a founding member of the art, architecture, and design collective MYCKET collaborations (2012-) with Mariana Alves Silva and Thérèse Kristiansson. Their artistic research practice, which often takes place together with others in large networks, has generated a breadth of results; permanent public spaces, large-scale theatre productions, costumes, details, works of art, instruments, exhibitions, animations, performances, text and theory production, pedagogical methods, and lectures. MYCKET received the 2021 Gannevik Award in Applied Art by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee. Rear more.
