Lecture date: 2012-11-09
This year’s Friday lectures investigate the architectural and artistic use of the category ‘everyday life’, a realm which appears to be immune to interpretation. The term can make reference to many meanings, including the given, an appearance, aesthetic or the concrete. These talks seek to link ‘everday life’ to the issue of the Cliché (the topic of last year’s lectures), whilst demonstrating how the phrase is embedded with philosophical presuppositions. Further, Cousins will address aspects of architecture and design from both the point of view of the Cliché and the imaginary.
