The second Foundational meeting of the TACK research network took place from October 12th to 16th in Wuppertal. The program of the week was organized by Christoph Grafe together with the team of the agt chair of theory and history of architecture of the Bergische Universität Wuppertal. After one year and a half of virtual encounters on Zoom, the meeting was the first occasion to finally meet all in person: a great opportunity of exchange not only for researchers and supervisors, but also for the many guests, non-academic partners and members of the advisory board who joined the intense program of activities of the week.
This month we celebrate the 2nd year anniversary of the TACK project. In honour of this occasion, we take a look back at the milestones that have been achieved thus far, in the form of a logbook.
Over the last two weeks, 6th -17th September, 10 TACK ESRs and 7 external participants converged on Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI) in Rotterdam for the TACK summer school, “Re-enacting Tacit Knowledge: 20th Century Architecture Summer Schools”. The summer school was organised by the ESR based at ETH Zurich, Hamish Lonergan, as the outcome of his secondment at HNI, under the supervision of Dirk van den Heuvel (HNI and TU Delft), Tom Avermaete (ETH Zurich) and Janina Gosseye (TU Delft). “Re-enacting Tacit Knowledge” explored the tacit knowledge of summer schools themselves through a set of experimental research methods including fictocriticism, performance and re-enactment.
