CAMP-project- conference and presentation

Do. 23. And Fr. 24. February 2006

"Supercamp" conceives the "Camp Complex" as a mental and social symptom that does not only effectuate political and architectural "camps" in the narrow sense but is tightly woven into the fabric of social life.
"Supercamp" is an international and interdisciplinary network project that addresses the contemporary discourse on various types of "camps" in public to enhance a multidimensional investigation on the "morphology of the camp" that shall combine scientific, architectural, artistic, performative and social aspects.
