Events | “Subject Studies: Reorientations" – Event Series developed by Rosario Talevi and Jia Yi Gu

Los Angeles | December 6, 2022 – December 11, 2022

Subject Studies is a new annual program series offering practical and non-practical public engagements, initiated by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture. Its inaugural theme, Reorientations, developed by MAK Center Director Jia Yi Gu and 2022 Thomas Mann House Fellow Rosario Talevi, directs questions towards institutional habits, routines and practices through perspectives of care, repair and transformation.

Reorientations invites dialogue between artists, architects and cultural experts and the MAK Center in order to address such forms of institutional labor and collaborative practice, beyond the public presentation of projects and work, with the aim of cultivating porosity and permeability within administrative and care-taking practices of the institution and its publics. The program series brings together artists, architects, public intellectuals, scholars, students and cultural and political leaders to exchange dialogue on social values, methods and thoughts relevant to contemporary issues in art and architecture.

On December 8th, 2022, the Thomas Mann House will be the site of a discursive dinner event, Ingesting: Discursive Dining at the Thomas Mann House, convened by 2022 Fellow Rosario Talevi and MAK Center Director Jia Yi Gu.
