Short introduction from the Artist about the workshop idea:

Regarding the different appearances of daily life, the main aspect of this lecture/seminar is a visual research on the “landmarks and leftovers”, based on deconstructed (postsoviet) industrial and settlement architecture projects in their subtile and obvious facettes.

(Re-)arranging, creating and composing the urban space is based on individual and public habits, mostly directed by personal needs and intentions. The results are subtile and sustainable modifications of the city architecture and public spaces. This part of the workshop is focusssed on on exploring “public objects” in their own story of function and disfunction.

Order as social form” is a current part of Manuel Schroeders lectures in “social photography”, a field of research he is realizing with universities, schools, art societies and museums since 2006.
