Faculty Activities: Tom McDonough at WIELS

porto

Constant’s Design for a Gypsy Camp, 1958.

On March 25, Associate Professor and Chair Tom McDonough will take part in a conference titled Let’s Build the Hacienda at  WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, held in conjunction with Vincent Meessen’s exhibition Sire, je suis de l’ôtre pays. McDonough’s paper is titled “Campo nomadi: Constant’s Design for a Gypsy Camp.”

Vincent Meessen’s exhibition Sire, je suis de l’ôtre pays is at the centre of this day of discursive presentations, during which the maze of the Situationist International will be further explored. A number of underexposed case studies will act as backdoors to the question at stake: how has architecture been used by the avant-garde to reinvent the everyday or, alternatively, to create a new “elsewhere”?
