SMS Faculty Kevin T. Allen’s film “Bridge” will be featured as part of the exhibition “City Struck” at the Danish Architecture Center from October 13th – February 28: https://dac.dk/en/city-struck
At the Night of Culture on October 13th, DAC will open its last big exhibition before moving into the BLOX building in 2018. Come and enjoy the photography exhibition that explores how the city influences people and how people influence the city.
Clean lines, a cloudless sky and entirely devoid of people. Architectural photography is often so focused on the building itself that the people who will be using it aren’t even in the photo. The photography exhibition City Struck – Photos of living places calls attention to the interactions between people and the built surroundings; First people create the city, then the city creates people.
This exhibition features photographs from all over the world and presents both loving and critical views of the cities and urban spaces surrounding people. Sometimes the buildings and spaces are used differently than originally intended, sometimes time alters both the architecture and the surroundings, and sometimes poetic and enriching meetings develop between people and spaces.
The photographs are taken by recognized professional photographers as well as by the city’s many Instagram users. They have been selected because, unlike traditional architectural photography, they are not devoid of people. Instead, they focus on the interactions between the built environment and city life.
City Struck – Photos of living places is curated by Marie Stender and developed by the Danish Architecture Center. The exhibition is supported by Realdania.
