Kateřina Šedá / lecture / What bad habits do architects have?
The Faculty of Architecture will participate in Kateřina Šedá's project Celej von - National Collection of Bad Habits in the framework of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the founder of genetics Gregor Johann Mendel. A unique project that maps Czech bad habits will concentrate on architects. We invite you to a lecture and discussion with the laureate of the Architect of the Year 2017 Kateřina Šeda. The event takes place in the auditorium A310 (Faculty of Architecture, BUT, Poříčí 273/5, Brno) on Thursday 1 December 2022 at 16:30. The event is held in cooperation with the SOFA student association at the Faculty of Architecture of the BUT.
Bad habits are things that accompany us throughout our lifetime. They distinguish us from others, define and characterise our personality and, paradoxically, unite us. We’d like to inherit and pass on the best qualities, but as we get older, all the baggage our parents have passed on to us becomes more evident. Nevertheless, our social networks comprise not only our nuclear family, connected to us by close genetic roots but other families of more distant “relations” as well – that’s what we often call individuals who are the proud bearers of some of our own bad habits.
Kateřina Šedá (1977) is a Czech artist whose work is close to social architecture. In her work, Kateřina Šedá focuses on socially-conceived events, often employing dozens or hundreds of people who have nothing to do with art. The events mostly take place right in villages or city streets. The purpose of experimenting with interpersonal relationships is to bring those involved out of their stereotypes or social isolation. She tries to induce a lasting change in their behaviour by means of their own (provoked) activity and new usage of everyday resources.
