After its insightful inauguration, asking architectural practitioners “How do we know?” (TACK Talks #1), the Communities of Tacit Knowledge network is pleased to announce the second round of the TACK Talks. “How to? A guide through knowing” is a call to further explore the tacit dimension of knowledge, focusing on the interplay between culture and professional practice, investigating how knowledge is identified, communicated and produced in their relationship and its reflection on society.

In three cross-over conversations, representatives such as directors, curators, archivists of the international institutions Architekturzentrum Wien, the Vlaams Architectuurinstituut and the Het Nieuwe Insitituut, accompanied by our ESRs, will debate on different perspectives of mediating tacit knowledge and address challenging questions surrounding their practice. Regarding the notion of expertise and the existence of a socially established design culture: how to choose the expert? Recognizing the agency of other actors in architectural production, both human and non-human: how to archive embodied knowledge? And finally, acknowledging the entanglements between territory and the built environment: how to define what belongs where?
