»Loveless: the architecture of the minimum dwelling« – In 1932, Czech critic Karel Teige proposed a concept of minimum dwelling in which every person would have a private room, but all the other domestic functions would be communal. Taking Teige’s idea of minimum dwelling as a starting point, Dogma revisited examples of minimum dwelling, from the medieval monk’s cell to the nineteenth-century American residential hotel, and from the Soviet Dom-Kommuna (communal apartments) to contemporary collective developments. In the lecture, Dogma will discuss the premises and consequences of this project.
Dogma – Rooms
The exhibition Rooms explores the domestic space via its simplest manifestation: a room. Taking this as a starting point, Dogma presents the results of two distinct lines of enquiry: The Room of One’s Own, which focuses on the history and function of the private room, and Loveless, which charts the evolution of the ‘minimum dwelling’.
On the occasion of the exhibition Rooms the architects of Dogma give a lecture on 2 April in deSingel (Antwerp) about the history of the minimum dwelling.
