Student-run discussion sessions led by Anna Ulrikke Andersen (Norwegian Architectural historian and filmmaker) and Dr. Jos Boys (Senior lecturer at the Bartlett, researcher and author).

Each of us bring our own ‘ordinary’ embodied routines, habits and unconscious biases to our built surroundings and to our encounters with others. Today we want to critically and creatively interrogate our own everyday practices, as a vital first step in (RE)acting in support of wider social, spatial and material injustices.

The OAT Academy 2022 workshop: (RE)acting/(EN)acting – Collective Dissidence, Reclaiming the Neighborhood brings together European architect schools to Oslo for a week-long dialogue and knowledge-sharing experiment.

Anna Ulrikke Andersen is a Norwegian architectural historian and filmmaker, currently an associate professor in Art History at NTNU, Trondheim, having recently been a postdoctoral researcher at the Disobedient Buildings project at the University of Oxford, and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College. She holds a PhD from the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL; where she used filmmaking and essay writing to explore the window in the life and work of Christian Norberg-Schulz.

Dr. Jos Boys is Co-founder and Co-director, with Zoe Partington, of The DisOrdinary Architecture Project which brings disabled artists into built environment education and practice, to critically and creatively re-think access and inclusion. Originally trained in architecture, she was co-founder of Matrix feminist architecture and research collective in the 1980s and one of the authors of Making Space: Women and the Man-made Environment Pluto 1894 (republished by Verso, 2022).
