On Saturday 21 January, the Evens Foundation will host a launch event at Berlin bookshop Pro qm for What Makes An Assembly? – our new publication created in collaboration with Sternberg Press.
Weaving together the anthropological, aesthetic, and political aspects of assembly-making, What Makes An Assembly? explores the potential of assemblies to reimagine the way democracy is practised in contemporary societies.
"A truly innovative volume inside and out. Learn from practitioners, activists, philosophers, historians and architects about assemblies as governmental and social movement practice." – Hans Asenbaum, political theorist and contributor
The book is now available to buy worldwide online and in all good architecture and design bookshops across Europe. To celebrate the launch, we are hosting a live discussion between some of the publication's contributors: architects Markus Bader (raumlabor), Markus Miessen and Aleksandra Wasilkowska and curator and dramaturg Florian Malzacher.
The discussion will be moderated by the publication's editors: Anne Davidian, curator at the Evens Foundation, and political scientist and sociologist Laurent Jeanpierre.
The event is free to attend and the discussion will be held in English.
