e-flux Architecture x Het Nieuwe Instituut

Monument: Reification

In the wake of rising nationalisms, critiques of globalism, and ongoing emancipatory struggles around the world, Monument, a series organised in collaboration with e-flux Architecture will investigate how monuments have come to play an increasingly significant and contested role in the constitution of identities, be they national, ethnic, communal, or other. In this first event, Mabel O. Wilson will discuss spaces of Americas commemorative landscape and the necessity to make visible the history of lynching and its legacy in mass incarceration through public commemoration.

From urban reconstructions in Berlin and Beirut to new structures being built in Accra and Utøya, the relationship between identity and built form has invested architecture with a renewed sense of urgency and agency. Architecture is not just a pragmatic spatial product, but an object capable of mobilising and rearticulating struggles for recognition. It cannot help but inscribe one set of ideas, beliefs, events, and/or figures into the built environment and suture them into the daily experience of history. The series, accompanied by online published essays, will include contributions by David Adjaye, Vasyl Cherepanyn, Philip Oswalt, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Valentina Rozas-Krause, Mabel O. Wilson, amongst others.

Mabel O. Wilson

Mabel O. Wilson is the Nancy and George Rupp Professor of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, a Professor in African American and African Diasporic Studies, and the Associate Director of the Institute for Research in African American Studies (IRAAS) at Columbia University. At GSAPP she co-directs the Global Africa Lab. Wilson joined the faculty of Columbia in 2007 and she has held fulltime and visiting appointments at UC Berkeley, California College of the Arts, Princeton University, Ohio State University and the University of Kentucky. She is trained in Architecture and American Studies, two fields that inform her scholarship, curatorial projects, art works and design projects. Through her transdisciplinary practice Studio &, Wilson makes visible and legible the ways that anti-black racism shapes the built environment along with the ways that blackness creates spaces of imagination, refusal and desire. Her research investigates space, politics and cultural memory in black America; race and modern architecture; new technologies and the social production of space; and visual culture in contemporary art, media and film.
