DAAR - Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency

by sbrothier
DAAR [Decolonizing Architecture/Art Residency] DAAR is an art and architecture collective and a residency programme based in Beit Sahour, Palestine. DAAR’s work combines discourse, spatial intervention, education, collective learning, public meetings and legal challenges. DAAR’s practice is centred on one of the most difficult dilemmas of political practice: how to act both propositionally and critically within an environment in which the political force field is so dramatically distorted. It proposes the subversion, reuse, profanation and recycling of the existing infrastructure of a colonial occupation. DAAR projects have been shown showed in various biennales and museums, among them Venice Biennale, the Bozar in Brussels, NGBK in Berlin, the Istanbul Biennial, The Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, Home Works in Beirut, Architekturforum Tirol in Innsbruk, the Tate in London, the Oslo Triennial, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and many other places. DAAR’s members have taught lectured and published internationally. In 2010 DAAR was awarded the Price Claus Prize for Architecture, received Art initiative Grant, and shortlisted for the Chrnikov Prize.

Decolonizing Architecture - Scenarios for the transformation of Israeli settlements - we make money not art

by sbrothier
While in Brussels a few days ago, i made a beeline for the Bozar to see an exhibition with a very promising title: Decolonizing Architecture. The show was way better and more subtle than i could have imagined from a superficial reading of its description.

Free Soil

by sbrothier
Free Soil is an international collective of artists that seeks to make projects that reveal social, political, cultural and environmental relationships. We believe art can be a catalyst for social awareness and change.


by sbrothier
The project Evil Interiors is a reconstruction of environments of concentrated fear and violence from well known movies like the home in A Clockwork Orange, the motel room in Psycho, the storage in Reservoir Dogs and the hotel room in Scarface. Working with stills from the movie the artist has estimated the architecture and created textures in the computer in order to reconstruct the interior. The reconstruction is created in the first person shooter game Unreal Tournament 2003. The project has resulted in large sized photos.
