The still-unfolding economic collapse of the late aughts has rendered the impasse within architectural patronage more apparent. In late capitalism, crisis and conflict are generalized conditions deemed necessary for the creation of new markets and architecture is contingent upon capitalism’s fluctuating processes of expansion and ephemeralization. Yet rather than acquiesce to the design of market commodities, what if architecture realized its own crisis-making potential? How can designers who are invested in restructuring prevailing market forces organize themselves? How might re-scripting the protocols of practice produce alternative aesthetic values, arrangements of resources and constituencies? If we could design a new relationship between architecture and commissioning institutions, what would it look like?

If there is no theoretical framework, no grand narrative, no normative system of values that offers architects orientation today as there might have been 50 years ago, there is a chance to learn from the mistakes of the past, map out new horizons, and work towards more inclusive, global futures. Join e-flux Architecture editor Nikolaus Hirsch and special guests Samia Henni, Mark Jarzombek, Reinhold Martin, Spyros Papapetros, Meredith TenHoor, Philip Ursprung, and Anthony Vidler for a series of presentations and conversations on the past, present, and future of architectural history and theory.

Recent developments in biotechnology, genetics, and artificial intelligence suggest that the ancient myths of eternal youth, immortality, and material resurrection are now a tangible horizon of the technological imagination. At the same time, a century of dreams for travel in cosmic space and life on other planets have coalesced into a new transcendental realm—infinite in size, yet located in the material world, which itself has radically expanded. What are the politics and aesthetics of life in this new world? With Boris Groys, Hito Steyerl, Anton Vidokle, Arseny Zhilyaev, and Ksenia Nouril.
