is one of the two parts of the Triennale.
It dissects the architectures entangled in the contemporary reconfiguration of
belonging, documenting the ways in which these architectures redefine
residence, and the spatial, aesthetic, technical, and sociopolitical implications
of this redefinition. This investigation is pursued through an accumulation of
evidence unveiling the multiple scales and media involved in these
architectures, including documents, objects, projects, and built interventions.
It will consider, for example, the relation of architecture to current pressing
questions like refugeeism, migration and homelessness; new mediated forms of
domesticity and foreignness; environmental displacements; tourism and the
contemporary technologies and economies of sharing, among others.
On Residence is structured around five areas: Technologies of a Life in Transit, Furnishing After Belonging, Markets and Territories of the Global Home, Borders Elsewhere, and Sheltering Temporariness.
The On Residence program will be explored through the exhibition After Belonging: On Residence at the Norwegian Center for Design and Architecture (DOGA), a conference, and a publication released for the Triennale’s opening.
