Speakers: Giovanna Borasi X Andrew Benjamin

Andrew Benjamin | Distinguished Professor of Architectural Theory and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Monash University, Melbourne

The Housemuseum, even if historically defined, still proves a fundamentally contemporary and elusive subject.

Uniting theorists, curators, architects, and historians from around the globe in one-on-one conversations, the House | Museum Conversation Series at Lyon Housemuseum Galleries aims to clear intellectual space for ranging discussion on the House, the Museum, and the Housemuseum. By simultaneously traversing these cultural and typological junctions, openings for (re)thinking origins, developments, preoccupations, perversions, failures, futures, and other Housemuseum things may appear.

House | Museum Conversation Series is curated by Scott Woods @harryhumboldt (Academic Fellow in Architecture at MSD) and is a partnership between Melbourne School of Design and Lyon Housemuseum Galleries. Students and Faculty of the MSD are offered FREE admission.
