Summary

A comprehensive overview of Studio Miessen's spatial designs and architectural projects.

Cultures of Assembly offers a comprehensive overview of Studio Miessen's spatial designs and architectural projects. The publication is accompanied by a series of commissioned essays by guest authors on some of the key ideas of Miessen's practice. Concepts such as “Bastardising,” “Revamping,” or “Friction” can be employed to describe projects that range from exhibition architecture, spatial design, and consulting to publications, installations, and collaborations with artists and architects as well as research projects.

Over the years, Studio Miessen has developed spatial strategies for institutions such as Witte de With, Rotterdam, Artsonje, Seoul; the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; Performa, New York; and conceived architecture designs for exhibitions at Artist Space, New York; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Berlin Biennale; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; and with Hito Steyerl or Omer Fast, amongst others. The book is a collection of speculative thoughts and material experimentations that together form cultures of assembly.
