The third episode of SALONS is organised in collaboration with T/C Latvija, Latvian pavilion for 18th Venice Architecture biennale, and culture space “Smilga”. We have invited special guest Estonian architect, researcher and curator Johan Tali (molumba). Based on his experience and research, he will talk about curious cases of exhibiting architects – how to shape the mindset through displays of environments and spatial interventions? In the second part, the T/C Latvija team will invite participants to be a part of the discussion about presenting Latvian culture products, particularly, architecture and art, in international forums. Those who were involved in the creation of Latvian pavilions in previous years are especially welcome.
* Supported by: Latvian Council of Science State Research Programme project “Landscapes of Identities: History, Culture, and Environment” (IDEUM, No. VPP-LETONIKA-2021/1-0008).
